the night the News broke of Elvis dying I was on Rock Ferry station and i thought someone said Paisley was dead (which i took as Bob)...got there in the end.

I heard John Lennon got shot when i was at university at Lancaster, Could just about tune in to Radio City from there to hear it all unfolding. Remember a bloke from Liverpool being quoted as saying "he should never have left we would never have done that to him".... funny in some ways but true in another,with him being kiled in a city he felt comfortable in.

I guess these two deaths were the equivalent to me of where were you when Kennedy was shot? .....no , not on a grassy knoll!

Time Computers must have paid some money to be on two "earth shattering headline" newspapers. And in the 70's, so early on in the development of PC computer technology!
