Unusual or not ? miscellany

Firstly from a very old 30s DIY Book published by the Daily Express, a special wooden holder to make for your Radio Times! We used to have a Radio Times folder which we put the RT adn TV Times in in the 60s, but most people use the newspaper now for programme details.

How not to treat a record – possibly one of the first vinyl 78’s? Shellac 78s would crack!


In the early fifties when I was at Primary School we used to read Janet and John Books. No wonder we grew up with so much knowledge! Just read the sample page!



A local poster for Harrow Community Radio, which was air on over Christmas. But is now online only



A classic new type of Chinese Food and a great spelling mistake to boot!

Are these edible or not…………… warning never try anything like this that you see growing wild!


Finally my wife spotted this gem on Ceefax recently, sorry it is a bit blurred. I did not know string was a weather phenomena !!


Sadly Ceefax in the London area will cease in April when they turn off all analogue TV transmitters. Let’s hope that they dramatically improve on the reception of Freeview !
