    Split Waterman RIP

    It might help if adults desisted the veneration of criminals such as Split, surely a bad example for any young people watching.

    Sandy Powell-Dirt Track Rider

    I've taken this record around a few tracks and played it on a portable gramophone, it was a favourite of Ivor Thomas's.

    Sandy Powell-Dirt Track Rider

    Only just noticed this thread, nice one, that is part one and two on the youtube vid you posted. I have two versions one on Imperial and another on the Woolworths Victory label, So it predates 1930.

    California name debate

    Hi chunky, I was joking, thanks for your reasoned reply, however the Wokingham council Wiki site calls it a village so I'll phone them and report back.

    Split Waterman RIP

    In that case you could inform Wikipedia of the erroneous assertion that California (nr. Wokingham) is a village, it might help to cheer up your pal the doctor.

    California name debate

    You may find the history of The California Ratepayer's Hall interesting, it's where the California Womens Institute meet.

    California name debate

    As for song titles I don't need google, every title I've posted, bar one, is in my record collection, the church I mentioned describes itself as being in the parish of Finchampstead and California. Thanks for your pleasant and polite response.

    Oh yes there is, California nr. Wokingham has a ,Parish church called St Mary and St John California and a California village hall a California Co-op etc. Perhaps you should look at a map.

    Wikipedia says otherwise, there are seven places in the UK listed as California.

    British world champions ratings list

    You tell em Sam , I was starting to feel that Peter Craven was being overlooked on this thread. My take on the Wembley '62 final, (my first time there) is that Peter was an exceptionally popular winner for both fans and riders.

    Father and rather like Colin very tall for a rider. Doyens in the world of grasstrack racing and nice to know.

    Oxford '64 I was there and often wondered what became of the promoters, Rodney Rycroft and Cyril Melville, who at the time were most affable and approachable and then disappeared, apparantly.
