HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER
In August 1961, South London group The Strangers auditioned successfully for Adam Faith and became his backing band for many years. They were now called The Roulettes. The Strangers could have been big months earlier, when they were given a new song to record, ‘Well I Ask You’. They duly recorded it and made a demo. Regretfully, one Eden Kane also recorded the song and sent it straight to the top of the UK charts… Everyone had forgotten about The Strangers’ demo, but during a conversation I had with Strangers / Roulettes Peter Thorp and Martin Blackwell, the latter suddenly announced that he had found a copy of the demo amongst a stack of old 45s. This is the first-ever broadcast of that demo. Sincere thanks to Peter, Martin and my friend Louis who restored the sound.
