    Have been an admirer of Alan since my teens as a Geordie from Hebburn who once attended his old school in Jarrow. Just descovered the site whilst looking for information.

    Hello Gordy

    Nice to see a Geordie on the forum.
    Have you been to any of Alan's concerts?

    Hi Rebekka

    The only time I saw him live was during the filming of 'between today and yesterday' by the Omnibus programme in 1973 which aired in 1974. As part of the programme, he performed at his old school, Jarrow Springfield. At the time I was a 16year old student at the school and was part of the audience. He performed for about an hour in the school hall, and then was interviewed by members of the sixth form on stage. It was quite a surreal experience and one I will never forget. I moved away in 1979 but still have family up there.
