Habibis post about Tulips from Amsterdam reminded me of a Saturday morning radio show in the fifties called ‘Children’s Favourites’, the song he mentioned was played often, along with others such as ‘I’m a pink toothbrush you’re a blue toothbrush’ by Max Bygraves and ‘The little shoemaker’ by Petula Clark

Which songs you remember songs from this time ?

Oranges and Lemons is an old favourite, the one i think most, if not all, of a certain generation remember is
Patti Page - How much is that Doggy in the Window...

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this witty site
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say "Goodbye", goodbye

Oh yes, in later years I taught that to my little daughter, I would sing it and she’d chip in with the ‘Woof woofs’ !

‘The laughing policeman’ was another memorable one :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

A man that was known as uncle Mac to the children hosted Children's Favourites on a Saturday morning for many years. He would always close the show by saying. "Goodbye Children,,, Everywhere"
Later I remember a guy nicknamed Stewpot doing it (not as good as Uncle Mac)
As to my fav songs ? The toothbrush song was right up there.
I have always thought that song would be great for kids to act out on stage, at a school presentation, have the kids dressed as toothbrushes, singing the song.
Through the week, and at the same time, was Housewife's choice, Followed at 9-55am by 5 minutes of religion, called, A story, a Hymn and a prayer. ahhh takes me back

I liked a song called My Brother about a naughty boy. It was by Terry Scott. It contained the lines,

“Who put salt in the sugar bowl ?
Who put fireworks in the coal ?
Who put a real live toad in the hole ? My brother !
