Just 'discovered' your Oh Boy website which is brilliantly designed and informative.

It's so good to see a website about "Oh Boy!". Thanks for all your hard work. As teenagers in the fifties, we were pretty much starved of television programmes that showed rock 'n roll.

Judith Kelly, UK, 10 August 2004


I have just spent time reliving my childhood and teens looking at your website.

You have put together a wonderful site which must rank as one of the most informative and dedicated one's on the web whether relating to this or any other subject.

Thanks for a great website! I used to watch 'Oh boy!' religiously every week, as a 10 year old back in '58

Oh boy what a delight to find your web site and remember my youth. Long may you reign!

Bobbie Turner, UK, 29 January 2005


A great website that took me back to the highlight of my saturdays at that time. I later saw lots of the artists on stage but your website reminded me of some I had forgotten. A great website about a great TV show. Well done.

Roger Webster, UK, 29 January 2005


Have just been introduced to your website! What a great find, and how the memories flooded back. I watched every one of those Oh Boy! Saturday night shows. Hard to believe it was 45 years ago! Thanx so much for a wonderful time down memory lane.

Anne Parker Michigan, USA


Just a few lines to let you know that I like your site very much...it has a lot of information and pictures.

Sue Bailey, UK, 3 March 2005


Don't know the date but Cliff DEFINITELY sang "One NIght" the Elvis hit on Oh Boy. I ACTUALLY saw Cliff sing it BEFORE I heard the Elvis "version"

Bren Birkett, UK, still a Cliff fan!


WONDERFUL to see all the pictures and everything, and a big THANK YOU for it, such a pleasure to view and read about.

Cathy Cave, UK, 27 March 2005


Just a quick line to compliment you on a spectacular web site. I chanced upon it whilst cruising around looking for British rock'n'roll items.

    I'm a USA fan! Can we expect more outtakes or stills from the 79-80 revivals? Those shows were nicely done, with excellent soundtracks. How about some bio data on the performers on those shows as well? Thanks!
