I remember Mike Berry- and I even remember the single he released in 1980- 'Sunshine of your Smile' , because it was my granny's favourite song at the timeblush.

So- Saturday only this week wink

Marking my place. smile

Hoping Palaver will be less annoying than recent weeks.

Raahh Sat 13-Feb-16 11:20:25

I think that might be expecting too much, Sparklinggrin

Sparklingbrook Sat 13-Feb-16 11:27:44

We can hope. grin

Raahh, hi! Yes, i saw Mike Berry's name, he had a fairly big hit with that song in the early 80s i think. My dad liked it ( its a very old song) but not his version, he said to me ' whos that twit ?' when he was on TOTP once. Ruined the song, he reckoned. (He hates modern music! ) Berry took over on Are you being served from Trevor Bannister ( i think that was his name) playing the young apprentice to the John Inman character.
I bet he hasn't aged well! Bless.

Sparkling, Palaver is a great moniker for Faith! Love it..
I wonder how long till BG mentions ' 15o million records sold' although not many in the last decade ..!

Samcro Sat 13-Feb-16 17:22:51

maybe she will have lost her voice

The80sweregreat Sat 13-Feb-16 17:25:32

Good to see a Terence song on the list, i loved his voice. Love is a battlefield, oddly enough i was thinking about that song the other day. What became of Pat?

Sparklingbrook Sat 13-Feb-16 17:26:48

I think Palaver is what BG called her. grin I hope we can have one Saturday without a BG bunfight thread, that would be good.

The80sweregreat Sat 13-Feb-16 17:29:09

Trouble is I'm too busy on here (laughing mostly) and not paying attention to what they say and do. Lots of singers this week.

Raahh Sat 13-Feb-16 17:34:33

Oh- I forgot to mention that one of the auditionees, Paul Phoenix, was on Eurovision- part of the group - New City Groove. Remember them? They were pretty rubbish, and not very Eurovision-y.

Raahh Sat 13-Feb-16 17:45:08

80s- Terrence was brilliant, though his second album was terrible. One of my favourites of his is 'Holding on to you' from the 'Vibrator' album. He changed his name in about 2000, and has pretty much disappeared. sad

Destinysdaughter Sat 13-Feb-16 17:49:29

Can't believe there's so many hasbeens on this, I thought it was to find fresh new talent? ( guess not...)

Wonder what BG and Palaver are wearing tonight?

The80sweregreat Sat 13-Feb-16 17:51:51

Shame he isnt still about, Raahh. I only have The hardline ..Cd and its not too bad. My son said he was a bit Michael Jackson when i dug it out once for a play. Seven more days was good, few ropey songs though. Not heard Vibrator.
I do remember new city groove, they got a few points i think.

Raahh Sat 13-Feb-16 17:54:19

Destinys- *fresh new talent*grin Definitely more about the has-beens.

Raahh Sat 13-Feb-16 17:58:28

And I think they always wear the same things- for continuity- since they don't know how it will be edited. Could be wrong about that though...

Destinysdaughter Sat 13-Feb-16 18:53:23

So that means Palaver will be wearing her black and white futuristic top, pink vinyl skirt and seventies style green sandals AGAIN..??

The last series I was fascinated by Rita's hair, every week it was another new and wonderful style ( and length!)

Raahh Sat 13-Feb-16 19:11:14

Destiny- Rita does have amazing hair a large collection of wigs.

I bet Palavar is regretting her choice of outfit- I remember one of the women on Dragon's Den being in the same boat. Hilary Devey said she didn't realise she would have to wear the awful outfit with mahoosive shoulder pads throughout the filming, or she would have worn something else!

Ricky was sensible sticking to a plain shirt and waistcoatgrin

theredlion Sat 13-Feb-16 19:15:20

Oh crap, I nearly forgot this.
I'm here.

Freshprincess Sat 13-Feb-16 19:15:26

Evening all.
Can't believe we're still on the auctions. Seems like it's been going on forever.

Destinysdaughter Sat 13-Feb-16 19:16:26

Ooh good on this woman for coming back!

Freshprincess Sat 13-Feb-16 19:16:42

Auctions = auditions grin

Raahh Sat 13-Feb-16 19:17:16

So, returnee number 1grin

Destinysdaughter Sat 13-Feb-16 19:17:44

Yay Rickeee turned! Bet he's glad he did as she's v cute...

The80sweregreat Sat 13-Feb-16 19:18:12
