forthcoming pages are here to provide some sort of list
for classic and vintage children's records. It is aimed
at listing records that were played for children through
to 1970 on British radio. Therefore it doesn't expressly
seek to include scouting records (althought we might
touch on "Ging, Gang, Gooley"), TV themes,
nursery rhymes, pop records, Disney records, and more
traditional records. However, I couldn't leave out
"Yellow Submarine" or "Mickey Mouse's
Birthday Party". Owing to my problems with the
PRS/MCPS, I do not include sound bytes - nevertheless I
do try to help with providing the source for such

The Wonder Horse
||Champion the wonder

Frankie Laine. It was well know because of the
1950s and 60s television programmes. Opposite is

wild stallion who befriends twelve year-old Ricky
North (Barry Curtis) in the American Southwest in
the 1880's. Although Ricky, who lived on his
