Free Stuff For Kids-No.6-Hobby Horse Club-REPLY!

Oh how wonderful it was on Saturday morning to see a big envelope with a postmark from the English Folk Dance and Song Society.
Even more wonderful was the contents inside the envelope which gave us a magazine, a sticker and my self addressed envelope back with the stamp on-THIS IS GOOD BUSINESS!
However all of this is nothing compared to the photocopy of the original Hobby Horse Club magazine complete with application form and instructions about always wearing your badge so others know you are a Hobby Horse Club member. I truly wish one day to find one of these badges so I can wear one and everybody will flock around me and dance to a merry tune.







Photo Archive- The day Frank Sidebottom came to Liverpool for an hour.

Tidying under your bed can be either terribly upsetting or very refreshing depending on what you may find under there. Amongst 45 hair bobbles, a foot thick film of dust and various other unmentionables, my old suitcase filled with photographs started to appear.

There is a lot to take in and there is a lot of talk about somebody called Phil and aliens and words such as 'dat' and 'dis'. It seems to centre on The Pop Pop Story where Phil needs some pills.
As I was six in 1987 I probably would have been drawing all over things I wasn't supposed to be as well.
This will now live in my found bits of paper box but already as I am typing I think I may have misplaced this historical document somewhere between the found bookmarks box and the found pieces of Foolscap paper file.
If you are Bojo or Daz 12th July 1987 then thank you for this insight into The Pop Pop Story and I promise to find it again if you want it b…
