Recommended Posts

Are any of them still alive?

 

Sadly our last world champion passed away in 1987 aged only 62.

You could also say that you get to watch the two time Elite League champions at Peterborough

 

A tenuous comparison if ever there was one ;)

K-tel's Top of the Pops album?

 

Excellent Sunday listening.

Is that all they play at the Showground?

 

The grooves must be wearing out now.

El Tel pops out of trench, dons Tin Hat :lol:

 

Trev and Scotsman

 

I appreciate that you are both ancient and have been watching speedway since just after the wheel was invented. But it would help immensely, especially for us significantly younger ones, if you could put some of your comments in a historical and cultural context.

 

For example

 

Who or what is Jethro Tull? some local peasant who lives between Peterborough and Rye House, who occasionally fill holes in the car park at Rye Houses, or some ancient speedway rider who is rolled out every 10 years for some anniversary or other?

 

K-Tel is this a historical DJ who pre-dates Blackburn and Wogan or a character from a B-movie Science Fiction Epic?

 

Trev – is that your only objection to Sunday meetings at the showground? – listening to the radio – you can get a half decent mobile phone that acts as a radio and they have sockets for Headphones too. There are now pre-recorded excerpts you can download to a modern device as well (so no excuse for missing Tannoy Announcements).

 

What on earth has the permeant “Blue Groove” on the inside of Pool Speedway track got to do with the music played at the Showground. No way is the blue grove going to wear out as it get more attention every week than the rest of the Pool track.

Jeez, with waffle like that Tel you could get a job with a roving mic :shock:

 

I've saved the relevant bit that requires action :)

Oh dear - the youth of today.

You obviously missed those lessons at school.

 

Jethro helped bring about the agricultural revolution by inventing horse drawn agricultural equipment.

Certainly could do with some of that at Rye, Poole and even Peterborough. And let's not mention Foxhole.

 

But as a "significant" whipper snapper, maybe you are only familiar with the Cornish man (rather than ice cream) coming to a theatre near you (well Milton Keynes anyway) - https://www.ents24.com/uk/tour-dates/jethro-1

 

If you are not a follower of K-Tel, maybe you are a Ronco man?

If so, here's one of their classic LPs - http://www.ebay.com/itm/I-LOVE-MUSIC-ORIGINAL-HITS-ORIGINAL-STARS-RONCO-1976-VG-VINYL-LP-RECORD-H-/111820602987

Maybe you would like to buy it for them to play at the Showground?

Nice to be call a Youf again innit Tel, the memory just about stretches back.

 

The music at the EoES is fine, it's the Ronco mic and the constant interruptions that are the problem
