Stream of Consciousness Saturday. All or Nothing.

This week LindaGHill of ” Life in Progress ” asked us to use the phrase “All or nothing ” we can use all of the phrase or parts of it. Also bonus points to be acquired if we start or end or both, our entry with “all or nothing ” or parts there of !

Rules and Pingback here


 All or nothing,  one of my favourite tracks from the Small Faces. It would of been 1966 and I was  a regular at Top Of The Pops a programme put out by the BBC.

I was a huge fan of the show and luckily for me my Dad knew  one of the doormen who worked at the Lime Grove Studios. So homework,weather and Dad’s friend being on duty permitting, a friend and I would present ourselves at the studio doors.  The system was the doormen would let a certain number of fans in, there was always a huge crowd. We usually were lucky.

So it was  all or nothing, if we didn’t get in we’d hang around to see if we catch any of the group’s leaving and get an autograph. ( I have lost all the autographs, careless me! ) So I have  nothing but my memories.

I was young then and my head was full of fashion and pop music. Carnaby Street, Beba, Mary Quant and all that ! Then I grew up. 

What have I learned in life… Yes you guessed it, It’s, all or nothing.

        I’m in the US, so no… 😝 I rented a video years ago with clips of a lot of the acts, including The Beatles, Lulu, and The Dave Clark 5. I think it was Dave Clark’s company that produced it. It looked like a lot of fun, and had I lived there, I’d probably have been glued to the set….

        It was a great time to be young, Both programmes were excellent, Ready Steady Go just had the edge. The Dave Clark Five were excellent too!
