Ivan Mauger - Desert Island Discs (Radio 4) 1970

Recommended Posts

Ivan's chosen records were

Joseph Maori Girls Choir - Pokarekare Ana

Herb Albert - Lonely Bull

Jim Reeves - Distant Drums

Dick Van Dyke - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Oliver - Consider Yourself

Roger Whittaker - I Don't Believe In If Anymore

Johnny Cash - Ring Of Fire

Herb Albert - Tijuana Taxi

Interesting selection and his luxury? Box of family photos.

Speedway on Desert Island Discs? Wouldn't happen in a million years now...the roaring seventies speedway's last 'Golden Era!'

Needless to say I have never been invited to "Desert Island Discs" (or anywhere else come to that)-but songs I associate with sixties speedway, and were played at the tracks were "From the Bottom of my Heart' -Moody Blues, "Hi Ho Silver Lining", Jeff Beck, "Heart Full of Soul" Yardbirds, "In the Middle of Nowhere" Dusty Springfield (R.I.P) -if I ever hear these songs again it takes me back to Newport 1965-1968. Anyone else have similar memories.
