Hello everyone, I was registered on Wigan World around 12 years ago, but as I'd not used that account for a very long time I had help from Ron to re-register.

When my dad was 19 or 20 (1955) he made a 78rpm record at Norman Leather's recording studio on Darlington Street; 'No-one But You' was on one side, and 'Autumn Concerto' on the other. I remember him sharing with me that he literally walked into the studio, and was asked to take off his shoes and walk over to the piano. He was counted in at the microphone and sang both songs in one take. As he said, 'you only had one take.' I'm very proud to have owned the '78' for many years, and some cassettes that he recorded onto, one including 'Love Letters.' All 3 songs were transferred to a CD created for my 50th birthday along with 2 songs my mum sang, 'Beautiful' that she sang when she was 14, and 'Danny Boy' many years later. The rest of the CD was created from my eclectic taste in music over those years. Some are still special to me, but none moreso than the songs from my dad. Priceless.

I've had great difficulty in attempting to convert these to be heard on the site. If they don't work, perhaps one of the many clever devils on here will point me in the right direction. Otherwise, I'll just carry on until I master the links properly.
