Junior Showtime

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Hosted by Derek Hobson Junior Showtime was a variety show for kids that launched the career of Bonnie Langford. Enough said, I think!

    I have fond memories of j.s. as I was on it a couple of times,doing my version of the " Muscleman" act from op knocks. I remember they would'nt let me use wheels cha cha as my music, I had to use tea for two cha cha, and there was a girl on the same show as me,with a large hat over her head and a face painted on her belly,she contorted and rolled her stomach to make the face move lol. We had fun backstage seeing who could ripple their belly the best.. Wonder if there is any footage of these shows available?

    I remember JS well, it launched the career of Mark Curry! I can't remember if it was 1974 or 1975 but even at the age of 8 I didn't think it was up to much.

    My friends and I appeared on a few Junior Showtimes when we were young.One particular one was with Peter Noone, of Hermans Hermits. Been trying for years to work out when we were on and to see if we could get any old footage. Any ideas. Thanks
