  • Rhythm & crunch

    I was just catching up on some of the programmes that I recorded over Christmas, amongst them 'Dee Time' - a doc on the rise & fall of Simon Dee.

    Amongst the archive material shown was the Smiths Crisps TV advert using 'Rhythm & Crunch', featuring Dee telling you how to obtain your free copy. It was his appearance in this advert apparently, that persuaded the BBC to commission his first chat show.

    So, that's something new for you to bore your friends and family with next time you're discussing flexi disks with them. As I'm sure you do a lot.

        I think it was a collect tokens thing, but they didn't show the whole advert unfortunately.

          They're showing both  'Soul To Soul'and a making of documentary of the same film.

          More details on the BBC4 site....

          After that, something called 'Soul Weekender', apparently behind the scenes at Caister. Which should be erm, entertaining.

          Oh, and between the two, a profile of Issac Hayes.

            Ahh. I always assumed they just popped them through peoples doors or something. I guess the token thing meant they could keep the quality up. Which is a very good thing. Did they give a year? I assuming it was a late sixties thing.

              Well, his BBC show started in 1967, so I'd guess that it would have been 1966-67.

              It does mean that you can get from Smiths Crisps to Roy Budd in just a few steps now. If you want to of course.

                  Rich,

                  If you can find 5 appropriate tokens, I'll give you a copy of the 45.
