lovely day, Dancing cheek to cheek, Top Hat, Time now for Lynn to make an appearance and she entertained us with 'That old devil moon, and You make me feel so young'. David completed his first contribution with 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'. Time now to welcome John on stage, and he completed my music requests with the 'Red Ruby March', again composed for us by Barry Lenton when we celebrated our 40 years existence, 'On a wonderful day like today' which was David Hamilton's signature tune, and he of course opened the Christie along with Robin Richmond, and 'Sorrento', nobody will need reminding that this was the signature tune of our former President Dr. Arnold Loxam. This was followed by 'O Sole' Mio and Funicula Funicule'. To bring the first half of the concert to a close John gave us a selection of quicksteps, including 'Everything stops for tea' so we did. Not only did we have the tea and coffee on offer that day, but also a complimentary glass of Red or Rose' wine for anyone who fancied one, and specially made 'Cup Cakes' were also on offer. INTERVAL As with the first half, David was first on stage with 'Thunderbirds are go', before going into a varied selection of music which included ' Yellow Ribbon, Snowbird, Paloma Blanca, Dance in the Old Fashioned Way, Chanson Damour, Vandevalk', which of course was the theme for 'Eye Level', I Don't know how to Love Him, and Can't Smile Without You'. Lynn then returned to the stage for her second spot of the afternoon, and gave us a very nice rendition of 'Smile, and Make Someone Happy'. David completed his part of the programme with the old favourite 'Tiger Rag'.
