I thought you must have been referring to those wind up gramophones where there was no electricity available. With those you give Perry Como a well deserved hurry up.

The countdown series was enjoyable to watch the music bought back heaps of memories, J O K absolute Aussie legend along with Billy Thorpe then throw in Slade, Status Quo, Suzie Q, the Bee Gees, taste in music changes with age I find didn't like Elvis much but now enjoy his music, same for Rod Stewart and Elton John, still can't warm much to Whispering Jack, give me Normie Rowe instead. The old rock and rollers like Buddy Holly, American Grafitti, Chuck Berry, Happy Days........

I had a Sony Beta video player - far superior quality to VHS, but of course everyone went for the crap model and made it popular.

Always exciting singing God save the queen Happy, remember as a very young kid going to watch a movie and having to stand up when God save the Queen was played prior to movie starting, didn't have to worry about it at the drive-in though :D

'They Call Me Trinity', I think. Or perhaps it was one of those silent movies from the 1920s :lol:

I too made the well-thought-out move of buying a Sony Beta player. Flip is right, they were far superior but died in the market.

We went to the drive in every week - usually Dundas or Bass Hill.
Cheering for the mighty Wests Tigers, all the way from France.

I can't remember my first movie but like Flip it was probably a western. I remember many good things about the drive-ins though went to Chullora, Bass Hill, Fairfield mainly, they used to sell delicious banana fritters and cream plus ice cream. Drive-ins were also popular when first got a drivers licence and taking girlfriends there to enjoy the movie so much so, also remember falling asleep a couple of times and being woken up by an attendant banging on the Windows- a little embarrassing especially with the windows fogged up........
