  • Season 1 Episode 56: August 21, 1964

  • "MoStokes" submitted the following info:
    As I recall (and I have very good reason for doing so), this episode included P J Proby and my husband's band The Cherokees playing their current record "Seven Daffodils". P J Proby performed "Hold Me" and Brenda Lee was backed by Bobby Patrick Big Six. I have searched the web in vain for details of this episode but I watched it; my husband was actually there in person; and as the Cherokees only only appeared once on Ready Steady Go, it was well and truly cemented in my memory and our family history. I also remember with annoyance, Cathy McGowan saying at the end of the Cherokees' performance that next week there would be featured the Mojos who also had Seven Daffodils as their current record and her tone of voice implied that theirs was the better version. I strongly disagreed!
