I attended my first concert in three years featuring original artistes of the 1960s such as P J Proby, Hermans Hermits, Dave Berry, Vanity Fair and several others. The show concluded with the Tremeloes, but with Chesney Hawkes standing in for his Dad. Yes, the one and only and he did a great job. The audience were of a certain age, but we youngsters of the 1950s and 1960s still know how to have a good time.

I have been lucky enough to meet a number of pop stars of yesteryear and who had hits when you had to sell far more than today to get a number one in the hit parade.

I must have a go at the BBC who film Strictly Come Dancing at Elstree Studios. Who the hell is in charge of that show? You have professional dancers unwilling to be vaccinated. Just replace them before casting as their places could be taken by talented newcomers who probably would work cheap as the spin off opportunities are very rewarding. Then you select a poor line-up of celebrities most of whom already work for the BBC when there is such a wealth of unemployed names out there.

Thank you to reader John from Wealdstone. It is great to hear from readers and fellow travellers down memory lane. John has asked me why do we call it Elstree Studios plus the BBC Elstree Centre and now the new Sky Elstree Studios when they are all located in Borehamwood. The answer lay in a time long ago.

When Elstree Studios opened it lay in the domain of Elstree Parish Council and the local rail station was named Elstree. So the American who founded Elstree Studios naturally called it thus back in 1926 as Borehamwood was still a series of farms.

Over time, Elstree is a brand name so, despite my request not to do so, Sky has taken that name for its new studio although I think they should have opted for Borehamwood. The same happened when the BBC took over the studio from ATV. The only local studio that put Borehamwood on all their films was the great MGM British Studios which ironically was funded by that Hollywood company.

I must also explode another urban myth that often occurs on Facebook and elsewhere saying it was a scandal that the 1930s MGM clocktower and admin building was allowed to be demolished although it was a listed building. That is simply not true as I campaigned to save it and have the paperwork.

I enlisted the help of my friend and local MP Cecil Parkinson. The reply from English Heritage was a refusal as it was of no interest. Hertsmere Council was powerless to prevent the owners from demolishing their own property and replace it with a car park citing it was surplus to needs and would cost a fortune to renovate.

One of the few redeeming qualities of getting old is you were there at the time and in my case bothered to retain the paperwork to prove it.

Until next time if you are a young reader enjoy life to the full. To my older readers I think Bette Davis was right to say you have to be strong to get old but whilst limbo dances and the twist may be beyond us as Strictly says 'keep on dancing'.
