At the end of my short stay Reg asked me if I'd like to join the show, of course I was delighted so he said he would advise me where to met up with them in about 6 weeks.
I continued with my normal gigs in the area at night whilst my daytime job consisted of a casual driveway attendant giving driveway service as was done in those days. I must have
done a fairly good job as Ampol Petroleum had just built a new service station in the town and asked me to manage it for them again while still doing my nightime gigs. All this
took place over that same 6 or 7 week period.
My circumstances changed in that time as well and when the call came to join the show I reluctantly had to turn it down. My bad luck was good luck for one beautiful young
lady named Judy Stone.
I also became a regular on Radio 2LM's "Radio Ranch" for a period where we sang live to air, make mistakes, naaaa never. It was fun to do that program which was on relay through
2KM Kemsey as well.
1959 to 61 as a member of a 4 pce band I basked in the glory as a singer at the Hotel Golan in Lismore what a great time we had there every Friday & Saturday night.
Fate had it's way and on moving to Sydney in 1963 it all came to an end, but I still love the world of entertainment.
These days I very much enjoy the company of friends in clubs such as the mighty Echidnas, been a member there since 2007 thanks to another wonderful friend Geoff Mack, he invited
me along one night and I have been there ever since, great bunch of members. I'm also a proud member of ARROWS entertainers past & present working prior to 1963. I enjoy their
company at a luncheon about every three months where we get to chat. But of course my greatest pride is my wife & family. Wife Remy 6 children 7 grand children and 2 great grand children. Love it.
Guess who? no prizes this is a young Noel during those fun days
