This week is the 40th anniversary of ‘Coronation Street’ , England’s most
famous and
longest-running TV soap opera. It has always been filmed in Manchester,
David’s home city.
In the Manchester Evening News on Monday December 4th there was a supplement
to commemorate the anniversary. There was a ‘Before They Were Famous’
feature, of people who appeared on the show but then found fame elsewhere,
afterwards. There is a picture of a young David Jones, appearing on the show
as Colin Lomax, in 1961. It describes him as “a little Monkee giving Ena
Sharples (his grandmother on the show) the runaround”.

Also featured was fellow teen-idol and Mancunian Peter Noone (Herman), who
later appeared on the soap as Stanley Fairclough.

Just wanted to let everyone know: I went to see the Grinch this
weekend, and one of the movie previews featured a cover version of
I’m a Believer!! Unfortunately, I don’t remember the name of the
movie (sorry! it was a comedy tho). It sounded like a very recent
cover version, pretty groovy, and I’m sure it’ll be featured on the
movie’s soundtrack!

Peace, Love and Tork
Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.
