Welcome to my Juke Box page. Just click on the Icon above to access the Juke Box. I am constantly updating this page with songs that evoke memories of me growing up in the sixties and seventies. If you have a particular favourite from the sixties seventies or eighties leave me a message and I will attempt to include it on future updates.
Johnny Cash - A Boy Named Sue
I remember my grandad getting this record in about 1968, and playing it constantly on the Radiogram, so much so he actually wore it out, but everytime I hear it now, I am back in 1968.
Pussycat - Mississippi
My Nans favourite song and another song that takes me back to those seventies days.
Bay City Rollers - Bye Bye Baby
Being a Slade fan I hated the Bay City Rollers, but the girls didn't and when they landed there helicopter on our school playing field, to play a live gig at the Liverpool Empire, it was straight from school to town to sniff round all the girls down there. (God I was so jealous of the Bay City Rollers)
I loved Slade when I was growing up, and remember going to watch them live at The Liverpool Empire, the support group on the night were friends of my Mums and her partner they were called 'Bunny', and as a result I had the pleasure of meeting Slade backstage and getting a signed scarf off Jim Lea, my credibility rating went up in school that week.
194 Radio City Jingle
Anyone who grew up in Liverpool in the seventies and eighties will surely remember this city Jingle.
Limmie & the Family Cooking - Walking Miracle
This was a follow up to their first UK hit 'You Can Do Magic' which was released in 1973. A Walking Miracle entered the UK Charts in 1974. Listen to it on The Jukebox.
Peters & Lee - Don't Stay Away Too Long
Another follow up song was this one by Peters and Lee, Don't Stay Away Too Long, was the follow up to Welcome Home and was in the UK Charts in 1974, listen to it on the jukebox.
Jim Reeves - Welcome To My World
Jim Reeves seemed to live in Randolph Street, as his LP's were constantly on the radiogram, both my Nan and Grandad absolutely loved 'Gentleman Jim'
Our Kid - I Can't Live Without You
Terry Baccino from Our Kid was a good mate of mine whilst at School in Alsop between 1972-1977, during this time he along with Terry Mac, Brian Farrell and Kevin Rowan, formed the boy band 'OUR KID' who went on to have a number one (or was it no2) hit with "You Just Might See Me Cry" unfortunately their musical career never really took off due to Liverpool Education Committee not allowing them to perform, which effectively ended their blossoming musical career. This song was the B side of you just might see me cry.
Our Kid - I'm In Love With You
Another Our Kid song which was the B side of 'Romeo & Juliet.
Our Kid - Romeo & Juliet
Romeo & Juliet which charted in the UK Charts in 1976
Our Kid - You Just Might See Me Cry
Our Kids only major hit which looked as though it would put them on the path to a promising career, however it wasn't to be.
Barry Blue - Dancing On A Saturday Night
When you listen back to some of these songs which were really big in their day, its hard to wonder why, as they were truly awful. This particular song from about 1974, takes me back to City Road in Walton and hanging around of a night outside 'Fongs' chippy.
Picketywitch - Same Old Feeling
This song I think is from the late sixties and reminds me of living in Balfour Street.
Terry Jacks - Seasons In The Sun
A song which is synomonous with the seventies is this Terry Jacks number which was was number one during that hot summer of 1974.
Rolf Harris - Two Little Boys
Undoubtedly a song which could have been written for my brother and I who were very often left to get on with things and support each other when we got into scrapes.
Sweet Sensation - Sad Sweet Dreamer
Another song which evokes memories of Walton Trades & Labour Club in Rice Lane, and the weekly disco held every Wednesday, with battles between the 'Delly Mob & Kirkby boot boys a common feature.
Tommy Hunt - Loving on the Losing Side
Can't quite remember when, but when I was about twelve or thirteen I went for a residential weekend in some big country house on the way to Southport with 'City Road' youth club, this particular song became a popular choice on the Juke Box that weekend, apparently its a Northern Soul Classic.
Billy Paul - Me & Mrs Jones
I recently requested MY LIVERPOOL FORUM members to offer their favourite songs from the seventies, with member 'Georgieboy2' recalling this particular song from 1972, which he requested to be added to the Juke box.
194 Radio City Jingle
From 1977 is this rare 194 Radio City Jingle, which was played by Local Presenter 'Billy Butler' (he still plays a variation of this on his Radio Merseyside Show to this day)
Cryin Shames - Please Stay
Covered by many artistes over the years such as the Drifters and recently UB40's lead singer Ali Campbell. Strangely Liverpool's Cryin' Shames only had a minor hit (reaching 24 in the charts) with this song, with Charlie Crane on lead vocals.
The Stylistics - Stone In Love With You
As previously stated I recently asked Forum Members of MY LIVERPOOL FORUM to select their favourite seventies song, or a song that evokes particular memories for them. Spike (Tony) asked for this classic from the 'Stylistics
Rose Royce - Car Wash
This was selected by JohnZ from the My Liverpool Forum. Good choice John and a track so synomonous with the seventies sounds.
Echoes of Merseyside
This record is for all Merseyside. It is a song made of words and sounds and people. A song fashioned from the hammered plates of great ships. It is the richness of skills, the warmth of humour. Voices of great stars past and present. The roar of worship for the god of football. Tongues that combine to produce the almost indefinable quality of life and living that is Merseyside.
Wings - Band On The Run
First heard this album when it was released back in about 1973, this track in particular provokes so many memories, a classic album.
