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.

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

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.
