Johnny Morris Flexidisc
I found this flexidisc in a charity shop yesterday. Johnny Morris was a very popular children's entertainer back in the 60's and 70's. Fond memories of his "Animal Magic" TV shows where he played the part of a zoo keeper at Bristol Zoo and did the voices of the animals. Also "Tales of the Riverbank" about Hammy The Hamster and friends which he also did the voices for. We had the pleasure to meet him once at a radio station foyer in Birmingham in the 90's when he must have been in his 80's. We were there to give an interview about our joint exhibition at Walsall art gallery called "Weirdorama". A very amiable chap who was kind enough to sign Hazel's notebook which she was thrilled by.
Johnny does his usual dulcit tones about Clarksons holidays and the trend for cheap package holidays in Spain, Greece and Italy etc. in the late 60's and early 70's.
