Subject: RE: Dance Groups from BBC Barn Dance
Hello! My mum JOYCE WALKER (and her friend DOREEN HETHERINGTON were in the John Peel Dancers - most were from WIGTON - recorded at the Oxford Rd Studios in Manchester I think. My dad went to one recording and was seen with a pint glass even though he didn't drink! Val Doonican was the famous guest. Racey jumpers and a rocking chair! Things were wild in those days! My mum is still with us and remembers it very clearly!
