The show was LIKE NOW and the presenter was Danny Hughes. The main guest on the show on that night Helen Shapiro. Tom Murray was manager at the time, the same Tom that appears in the Miss Kells photos; Tom is recently deceased RIP. I think Spotlight may have reported on the show. I wonder are there any stills or photos out there. The site is brilliant and brings back many memories! Thanks. Mike Allen Comments are closed.
