Monday marks the 50th anniversary of my 1st radio broadcast. Within weeks I would sign to Elton John’s Rocket Records and my dad & I would find ourselves in the back of Elton’s Phantom V Rolls Royce. That’s why I’ve been a little emotional this week thinking back 50 years to the week when the course of my life changed dramatically forever
Last weekend Mumbles had a brand new tourist attraction. With the Mumbles Railway, the seaside and ice cream, chips and oysters the village has always been the place to go on a summer’s day. Then last weekend the news started going around that we had to get down to the front to see the big digger. The question on everyone’s lips seemed to be, ‘how could this have happened?’.
