Six Five Special
28 February 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The six five special's coming down the line....the six five special's's right on time.......

Not only do I remember it but I also was an audience member for one show that came to the Kursaal in Southend. Circa 1958, me 14 with my brother, nearly 16. Yes I did love Denis Lotis but he didn't host that particular episode, sadly for me. Don Lang substituted which was for me rather disappointing. And as another IMDb poster pointed out, 'well-brought-up gels' didn't like Elvis. It's true. It was only 'common' girls who liked him in the very early days. What WERE we thinking?

My brother and I were lucky to get tickets (for 6-5 special), dunno how.......they were actually and unbelievably like gold-dust. But we spoiled it by having an argument on the dance-floor whilst jiving. Not a pretty sight in front of a live camera. I managed to follow it up years later by several more embarrassing appearances on *Live* TV........viz Golden Shot, Thursday Night Live, & others I forget. Well I'm a pensioner now, so I'm allowed selective memory. :) Besides Six Five Special, other defining moments in radio and early UK TV: Quatermass, (scary), Journey into Space, (eerie), The Goon Show, Round the Horn, (hilarious), Muffin the Mule, (yes really...ah bless him), Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men, (flobbadob...joined by Weeeeeeed), In Town Tonight (STOP). And one I totally loathed but was forced to endure on the radio after Sunday lunch, to 'let the food go down'.: Sing Something Simple. Might have been part of the Black and White Minstrel Show. I hated it. Six Five Special was an also-ran with teenage music show 'Cool for Cats', and the precursor for Top of the Pops.
