“The weekend turned out great,” recalls singer David Spencer, who also plays Rotherham’s Snafu on Sunday. “Not only did we play a stormer of a gig at Frogstock, but on Saturday night we got a call asking us to play at The Hawley Arms (Cricket Inn). Richard came up and said a few words to tell the multitude that Lady’s Bridge had entered the charts at number six and then borrowed my guitar and played two songs with the rest of Cool Canasta.”
