Day2 Narrabri Rally

Its getting to be very hot during the day (a complete fire ban has been issued for the state of NSW !) fortunately the evenings are cool and the huge Marquee has been air conditioned .Annie has been to seminar on how to felt make teddy bears ( I gave it amiss) We attended our Chapters Happy Hour and was greatly entertained by 2 singing guitarists .We have been selected to playign the mens and mixed threesomes at Disc Bowls ( a game unique to CMCA) We decided to stop for a bite at the Village Food Centre,but it will be the last time ,bread was stale and the sausage over done ! Night ime we were entertained by an Aussie Rock singer from the early 60s ( sorry Aussie,s I haven’t heard of him) and his kind of music was very good Lonnie Lee and the Leemen .Lonnie (born 18 September 1935) is an Australian singer. He was raised on sheep property in Rowena, New South Wales and has been performing since the mid-1950s. At the peak of his career, Lee had eight top 100 singles on the national charts. Seven of them peaked in the top 40, including three top 20’s and two top tens. His highest peaking song on the national charts was a #2. He achieved five Gold Records. His last hit was ‘Sad Over Someone’ (1969).
Lee got his first break in 1956 with a performance on radio 2UW’s talent search, Alan Toohey’s Amateur Hour where he came second. In February 1957, he won an MGM contest for ‘Australia’s own Elvis Presley’ and in 1959 recorded his first record for Leedon Records called Ain’t it so, which he wrote with Johnny O’Keefe and which became his first national hit. He also formed started Sydney’s first Rockabilly trio. At this time, Lee made his first of many television appearances on the ABC’s rock and roll television show Six O’Clock Rock as well as Bandstand and for a bloke of 75 he looks exceptionally good for his age
