Episode Summary

EDIT
Smokey and the Band
AIRED:
Harry is searching for a group to provide entertainment at the Coaching Inn. He approaches Frankie Bass, a theatrical agent, who recommends a Country and West band, Bronco Billy's Boys. Harry hires them privately, bypassing Frankie's agency fee. Ken falls for Bebe McLintock, their raunchy blonde singer, after he has to rescue the band when they break down on their way to the Coaching Inn. Frankie Bass turns up and demands her share of the takings. Bronco and Bebe are forever arguing and Bebe is angry that she is not given sufficient chance to sing her own songs. She runs away from the band - and ends up in Ken's bed! She is on the point of leaving the band and living with Ken. However Ken's luck does not last: before long Bebe (who turns out to be Billy's wife) goes back to the band after Billy decides her needs her to stay. He is prepared to give her top billing and to let her sing her own songs. When White Lightning (Ken's beloved bike) is stolen, it is another member of the band, P T Hudson, who notices it in a back-street garage run by a disreputable bike dealer, Arch Clanton. When Clanton refuses to hand back the bike (but offers to sell it to him), Ken takes matters into his own hands and "steals" the bike. Meanwhile Harry has secretly arranged with Arch to buy back the bike for Ken. Arch follows Ken back to the Coaching Inn, intent on repossessing it. Harry misinterprets the situation and pays Arch, as arranged - yet again his generosity exceeds his common sense!moreless
