The Anonymous Widower

My First Request For Music On The Radio Was Successful

At seventy-three, I’d never askd for a tune to be played on the radio.

The presenter on Radio 5 Live, asked listeners to suggest a track, that would be suitable for the times.

So, I texted in.

Surely, the best track for these times is We’ve gotta get out of this place, by the Animals!

I was very surprised, when they played it!

As many do, I’ve got the name of the song wrong, as it’s actually We Gotta Get Out of This Place.

I certainly saw The Animals, at least twice.

The first time was when I was about sixteen, at the Regal Edmonton, where they topped the bill, with the Nashville Teens being the second group. I can remember Eric Burdon singing House Of The Rising Sun, highlighted by a red spotlight.

I also saw them at Cook’s Ferry Inn, when they chose a replacement for Alan Price and I may have seen them whilst at Liverpool University.

Those were the days!
