School Blazers to Mohair Suits. Growing up in the 1960's-Part 2

online talk


Musical memories of growing up in the fifties and sixties

Our regular walking guide Barrie Greene joins the online brigade

Growing up in a London in the late 1950s and the “swinging” 60s, was quite remarkable, although those of us at the time didn’t realise it back then. We were just normal teenagers, suffering from the same angst that adolescents have always done, but we had one advantage, the fabulous music which has lived on through the decades.

In his talk he uses photos and music and various anecdotes to tell you of his personal journey of growing up and how music affected him and keeps those memories fresh in his mind. By just by hearing a few bars of a song memories flood back like such as, traumas on the dance floor when asking a girl to dance, his first night club, first kiss, first holiday abroad and a forever wish to be older.

So Don’t Walk On By or Runaway come with him on a personal musical journey and Walk back to happiness to the days when Barrie was just growing up. Join him as he cruises back in time because there is always Something there to remind him.
