Re: 40 Years Ago

Bruce Thomas old itenary that he published some months ago could be added here as a reference too. But I am sure you have that one on top of your desk already. This might or might not help out.

Re: Elvis song taught at 'O'-level?

Hmmmm. I know I read about it many many many many years ago. But where? Where am I supposed to look? After 1981 of course, but which year can this have been??? It is annoying now.
