Long time since I've logged in here due to work/family issues.... Still lurk but too busy to post much these days

Found something of interest on youtube via a twitter link feed I follow that I liked to share with my fellow Steptoe fans...

Albert singing "second hand" from 1963!

Ah yes, Wilfrid's first single, and a jolly good one too. He also did 'The Decimal Son' in 1971, which is worth looking up on youtube.

Welcome back... I've heard about people who 'lurk' on the internet... :evil:

Hello Phil,

Hope you, Bob and all the regulars are keeping well...

Nice to see Bob's hard work has come to fruition with it now being "official"...

Although I look in from time to time, I have my only little project page I look after on facebook (not Steptoe but a 60's actor called Alexis Kanner) and while looking for anything to add to the page recently, I came across a very interesting blog of a gentlemen called Ivan Kirby who reviews television from 50 years ago!

It's actually quite brilliant in it's concept with him reviewing old episodes (giving a synopsis and screenshots) of the likes of Corrie, Z Cars and of course Steptoe and some lesser known programmes like Ghost Squad and Armchair Theatre that was first shown 50 years ago to the day....

I found him review an old episode of Steptoe from August 63 and that's where I stumbled across Wilfred's single....

It's well worth a visit.... http://tvminus50.blogspot.co.uk/

Keep the good work up and remember it should always be HALF FULL.... :D

Quite a long time indeed, you were among the first here!
Welcome back Graham :)
"Second Hand" is an excellent bit of music isn't it, melody & lyrics. Wilf's performance is spot on and Phil's Asst Rags tribute that accompanied it lends an added depth, a sentimental sod can't help but smile and shed a respectful tear.

Bob,

The only thing I have tied into 2015 at the moment is my energy supplier fix!

So a belated hello and just to say how wonderful the site is these days, although you set a high bar when you first set it up....

Really proud that your efforts were rewarded by the fans helping to make it "official"...

It can be hard to juggle these things, I now find myself needing to work a 40 hour week just to break even. Always time for steptoe of course. Whether someone posts once an hour or once a year everyone is welcome here and it is always good to see you.
