Television appearance THE REAL MERLIN

During the last day of term, i.e., Thursday 16th July 2015, they had an end of term disco where I was the DJ. Imagine my surprise on the gig, when a television camera crew turned up! The kids loved it!

Television is not new to me. The most well-known appearance was on was Noel Edmond’s “Multi-coloured Swap Shop”, BBC 1, 1981. That was a live broadcast at Cardiff Castle, with presenters Maggie Philbin and Keith Chegwin.

Garnant Golf Club was the venue of our recent party, which was in fact, a dinner dance. It was a very pleasant evening, keeping the guests happy with background music to start while the meal was being served, and music to dance to later.

We have travelled and worked in many venues in Carmarthenshire, including The Cawdor Arms in Llandeilo, The Ivy Bush Royal Hotel in Carmarthen, and The Stradey Park Hotel in Llanelli.

We’re continuing to do party discos in Swansea. Our most recent is in Bonymaen Rugby Football Club. This was football presentation night for the Junior Division. We have plenty of requests as usual. We made one of our radio microphones available for the presentation and for announcements that were important for the running of the event.
