Thread Name: Ted Edwards' 65th birthday! (25 April 2004)
Subject: Origins: Ted Edwards' 65th birthday!
Ted Edwards, Intrepid Explorer, almost an astronaut (seriously!) and writer of many fine songs and poems, is 65 on Sunday April 25th 2004!
Amongst the songs he wrote are 'Coal Hole Cavalry' - 1969, 'Monday 'Er Does All 'Er Weyshin' (aka 'H.R.H.') - 1973, 'Weepin' an' Wailin' Away' - 1974, 'Ladybird' - 1975, 'The Coal and Albert Berry' - 1979, and 'Dance, Dance' - 1992.
Ted's prize possession is a copy of the Ewan MacColl/Peggy Seeger album 'Kilroy Was Here', on which 'Ladybird' appears.
If you are anywhere near Wetherspoons in Eccles, Manchester, on Sunday, why not nip in - Ted is likely to be there having the odd pint or two!
