I worked at Lewis's from 1958 to 1964 and remember seeing Pete McClain and the Dakotas play there and was knocked out by them. Also saw The Overlanders there. What happened to them ? Happy Days.

Ahh, Lewis' Alan Sugar domain - I saw the Sooty Show there in 1972/3 'ish.. Worked there in the display department on the top floor with several amazing characters who, for some reason, their names escape me - except for one of the girls (second name was Halliwell - not Gerry.) and Steve. But the dream was shattered. there wasn't one real Sooty, there were lots of them in a suitcase. No wonder he could appear on stage from various parts ! Happy days indeed. Regards Phil
