Things I Bet You Didn't Know No.1

According to the obituary in today's Independent of Terry Hall, the ventriloquist behind Lenny The Lion....

"The Beatles made one of their earliest television appearances in a May 1963 episode of Pops and Lenny, singing their first No 1 single, "From Me To You", and "Please Please Me", as well as joining Hall and his puppet for a song titled "After You've Gone". At the time, the future pop star David Bowie's father was working on the show and he launched the Lenny the Lion Fan Club. Hall and his stooge also released their own single, "Lenny's Bath Time" (1963)."

Thanks to my brilliant designer pal Richard Evans for this top tip
