'Long John' Neale's Musical Quiz - 13 October 2007

'We've had a number of quiz nights at the club over the last few years but this one was the first musical quiz which actually involved listening to music. It must have taken John ages to put together.

John had arranged the evening into classical, shows/films, jazz/big bands & memory lane sections. Four teams called A Minors, B Sharps, Top C's and D Lites competed.

After the first two sections Diana Carpenter provided a delicious buffet ably assisted by Linda and Anne; there was a very different selection of food. Pete and Nigel manned the bar dispensing the all important brain stimulants.

The last two sections were then fought out with 'Long John' manning the tape deck and insisting that everybody was bound to know the answer to the next question.

In the end the A Minors won with 68 points, the D Lites were 2nd with 63 points, Top C's were third with 50 points and the B Sharps, who all claimed they were far too young to know the answers to most of the questions, came 4th with 38 points.

Many thanks to John for putting the whole evening together, and to Annie, who's home decorating programme was severely impaired while John enjoyed himself dusting off the vinyl and recording the music used on the evening.
