Over Xmas my wife managed to track down this footage of me appearing on UK 70's TV show Jim'll Fix It in 1976. This was the Christmas Special featuring Rod Hull & Emu as well as camp superstar John Inman from Are You Being Served? I remember it took me 3 years to live down the embarrassment at school of trying to pull a feather out of Emu's tail. I am wearing a T Shirt with the logo 'Sellit & Soon' which was the name of my fathers second hand shop in Milton Keynes, he even payed me £5 to wear it - a free advert for him on the BBC.
I had originally written in to the show when I was 12 and I knew even then that I had to ask Jim to fix me something easy or I wouldn't stand a chance of getting on. The show was the most popular Saturday night TV show at the time so asking to meet Bowie or Marc was just pointless, so I chose Rod Hull & Emu, who were also big stars at the time, with the hope that I might have more luck getting on if I asked for something easy to set up. However I was mortified 2 years later to find out I was gonna be on the Xmas Special, not what a 14 year old would ever want to be doing!
