and, to add insult to injury, my copy of "Ripping Yarns" only plays the first story on each DVD, so much for the complete series, no menu, straight in, one episode per DVD, Bugger !

Gods Golf Ball Productions - bonus house point for anyone that can place the artist (music, early seventies, used to be represented in the UK by a man familiar to us all, some deformity of one hand, had a beard, annoying Saturday night TV programme still running - the Representative, not the music artist)

The Promoter was Jeremy Beadle, but don't have a clue who he represented.

Correct, There Ain't No Santa Claus on the Evening Stage ....

He suffers from Poland Syndrome which explains the problem with his hand. Strange, I never noticed, but I also never noticed that Radar in Mash had a deformed hand.
