1966

The Bachelors visited Caroline House, the offices of Radio Caroline, along with Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield and Spencer Davis.

Radio Caroline was a Pirate Radio Station based on a ship off the British Coast.

Back in Blackpool's ABC Theatre 'The Bachelors' with Cilla Black supporting them.

                                   

                   

Mrs Mills who was a brilliant pianist, celebrating with a cake she had baked in honour of a record breaking Summer Season!

 

Cilla Black was asked by The Bachelors to join them for a 16 week Summer Season at the ABC Theatre in Blackpool, England. The show was a complete sellout for the entire run. Both Cilla and The Boys  were presented with plaques at the end of the season to commemorate the fact. Most nights, even the 'standing room' was full which was a record not just for the ABC Blackpool, but for all ABC theatres in the country! Also on the bill was Pianist Mrs Mills, Canadian comedian Frank Berry, Freddy 'Parrot Face' Davies and comedian Ray Fell.

 

'The Bachelors' appearing with Billy Fury in the film 'I Gotta Horse' also Larry Parnes

The Bachelors were in Blackpool, the film was being made in Great Yarmouth. This meant The Boys had to fly down to the film set to do their bit each day, returning in the evening to appear on stage in Blackpool. They sang two songs in the film which were pre-recorded in London. The choreography for the film was directed by their great friend Ross Taylor.

 

 A trip to America to appear on the Ed Sullivan show and the Johnny Carson Show on TV and do some Cabaret shows

We did two nights at Lou Rossi's Three Oaks Restaurant in a sleepy little suburb of Los Angeles called Montrose.

On 10th Dec. 1966 The Bachelors were asked to lay the Foundation Stone for Batley Variety Club in Yorkshire, England.

such as Louis Armstrong, The Bee Gees, Shirley Bassey as well as The Bachelors.
