Had the Krankies on to me….they require a Xmas song for their Panto in Glasgow….which they do each year…..the song will be used in a sketch where Janette plays Kim Jong-un and Ian plays Donald Trump…..they are hilarious on and off stage and very easy to write songs for.

…This is 7th November 2018….exactly 10 years to the night….at The Cheshire Cats jam night …where myself and Derek Green invited Mike White along (as he was part of the original show) and we played some of the Ricky Nelson hits featured in the original show…it was a real pleasure….great memories…

We were delighted to welcome Chan Romero and his band who were our guests at The Cheshire Cats….Chan wrote “Hippy Hippy Shake” which has been performed and recorded by so many bands….I had a chance to chat with him about his early days in rock and roll where he mixed with the likes of Jerry Lee and Elvis….

…what a delightful chap and a privilege to know….a true legend…loved him.



It was a pleasure and a privilege to present a cheque for £2000 on behalf of The Cheshire Cats to the wonderful Liverpool Women’s Hospital which will help towards the marvellous work they do on behalf of babies and their young mums.

Back in the 80’s I wrote and produced an album of wrestling songs for wrestler Adrian Street….this has recently been re-released in The U.S. in it’s original state except it is now on clear vinyl with blood splatterings …also on CD AND cassette….I knew it would come back to haunt me one day……this album is available from Burger Records…

…I actually produced two albums for Adrian “Shake Wrestle and Roll” and “Naughty But It’s Nice”….I have put all the songs from both albums on to one complete CD ….in fact every song we recorded together…21 in all…The Complete Exotic Adrian and The Piledrivers …NOT for the fainthearted but a collectors item for grappling fans……. copies are available for his admirers from the “SHOP” section of this website         As I said this item is NOT for the faint hearted …NOT for the politically correct brigade…NOT for the easily offended….it is raw pure classic Adrian !!!….21 original tracks…unbeatable!!                 certain tracks have been featured on MTV in The States and in the film “Grunt – The Wrestling Movie”…

    I have just viewed your wonderful ‘Wirral Villages’ –
    memories and tears came flooding back having once lived in Port Sunlight and Neston (over 50 years ago).
    My family are always at a loss as to what to get me for Christmas etc., now no longer the case.
    Thank you for such wonderful memories beautifully played and sung.

    Hi Don,
    Oh my word! Where do I start?
    Your cd’s have given me the feel good factor!
    They are blummin brilliant!
    There are so many that are now my favourites!
    This year I challenged myself to walk up Snowdon so your “I made It To The Top” I thought was fabulous!
    Your “Stars cd” made me chuckle, (Poor Barbara Stanwyck!! Lol)
    I love your Doo Wop cd, that is brilliant!
    Oh! How I wish I could go back in time, yes! A taxi to the past would be perfect!
    As for your Mersey songs . .
    Gosh! I could go on & on . .
    Such fantastic tracks,
    Thank you so much for putting a huge smile on my face & for taking the time to sign each cd for me.
    Please let me know if you ever do a live performance, I would love tickets for that. Xx

    Hi Don,
    Richie Prescott was a great friend and my Best Man at a previous marriage. Whilst we might a few times in recent years but, to discover he had recently died is a great shock and immensely sad. If possible, I would appreciate knowing how he died. I met him in ASDA on his 60th birthday full of life and energy. You may recall meeting me as the Floral Pavilion (old) photographer and yes I do have a few photos! Thank you for any response.
