The stories of Del Shannon, Runaway and - no point being modest - Salut! Live come together in a strange way.
As a young lad trying to avoid such meaningful activity as homework, I regarded the arrival on Radio Luxembourg of this big hit from the States as a significant event. It was as good a single as I remember from the year, and I briefly wanted to be Del Shannon.
Later that year, or maybe the next, I was in Blackpool on a family trip. The amusement arcades had make-your-own record booths and in I went to give Runaway my best shot.
