  1. As well as being a trendy tailor Danny was a jazz enthusiast, and in the years immediately following World War 2 he had a small recording studio in Spalding. I was taken there by my mother and my aunt one evening – maybe in 1946 or 47 – and my aunt recited nursery rhymes. I still have the 78rpm record. Danny also recorded (possibly illegally) my mother’s appearance on the Wilfred Pickles radio “Have a Go” show when it visited Spalding. My mum (Sylvia George) won the jackpot!
    I have just discovered this archive of pictures, and it contains many scenes I remember and people I knew. I left Spalding 20 years ago, and now live in the far north of Scotland.

  2. I have a paperback published in 1983 ‘ You can play the guitar’ by Dan Morgan and Nick Penny. I have always believed that this was the very Dan Morgan of Dannys Can anyone confirm that ? Ian F

    1. Danny wrote many books. Science fiction and two guitar books by himself and one of the first books about wind surfing.His first guitar book was published originally in 1965 and revised several times selling more copies than Bert Weedon’s “Play in a Day” until the later was popularised by the radio one DJ Mike Reed.

  3. Mike I hope that you get to see this post We were at SGS at the same time and your early years article brought so many memories back and also told me a bit more about ‘Holy Joe’ Chigwell. I knew a bit about his flight with Yehudi Menuhin but not the where and when.
    I would like to make contact and share a few more memories if we could
