This one is for you, colly0410. It's the Shadows on 'The Multi-Coloured Swap Shop' with Noel Edmonds in 1981. 'Telstar' was my Mums favourite tune so it's a bit of nostalgia for me, also.

Thanks for the link Michael, I've never heard that version of Telstar before, I like it..

I thought you were referring to Bert Weedon. His guitar tutor ‘Play in a Day’ was used by all budding guitarists in the 50/60’s. I think the title ‘Play in a Day’ was overstretching it somewhat though!

To me this perfectly evokes growing up in the late 50s-early 60s more than just about any other piece of music.

Knew the tune as soon as it started playing but strangely never knew the title of the piece. Yes very evocative of the era.

This is the first of a playlist of BBC Radio theme tunes that strikes many memories, just scroll down to your favourites and get transported back in time.
