Forgotten Hits

Brushing herself down, she stepped up again on the final day, putting earlier disappointments and frustrations behind her to PB in the 50 fly despite the injury and finished 7th in the final going faster again. Day 2 picked up and then exceeded day 1s highs.

A fantastic time at the PL Christmas Gala with a 30 strong team of swimmers. Some big PBs, medals and a trophy for winning an inflatable race. The team impressed with 4 wins and one defeat. Introducing our Devon Masters From left: We had another 5 teams from other local Counties to compete against at Millfield and the results are then fed into all the other Inter Counties taking place around England that weekend.

First to swim was Jodi in the FS Relay and she swam the 2nd leg with an excellent swim and Devon finished second by a mere 0. Then Rob swam the 50m Fly with a very impressive time of Back to Jodi who then swam the 50m FS and came first in Rob then did a stonking last leg in a Medley relay extending our lead in his 50m swim by at least 3m helping us to finish 1st with a 7 sec lead.

Jodi then swam an excellent last leg with a fantastic tumble turn in the Medley relay coming home 1st. Then back to individual events, with David finishing 1st in the 50m Br by a hefty lead of almost 3 secs.

Back to both relays and David, who swam in the mixed Relay, his Br leg was amazing gaining almost 5m over the second position swimmer, we finished 1st of course but by an astounding 15secs! Then another Medley Relay with Rob swimming Br, despite him clawing back over a metre from the leader, shock horror, we came second by 1.

Then it was old man Paul's turn in the 50m Br who came a respectable second in Finished off with some more relays with Rob and Jodi participating and both relay teams finished 1st. A great day with great team members and the pork pie on the coach back was scrummy. A fantastic weekend of swimming in the winter Harwich Cup.

A great Saturday was backed up with an awesome Sunday, with more PBs, more qualifying times and more medals. And somewhat modelled in an ok way by Parsons. And of course thanks to Carys who brought in cupcakes and Danny and Julie who brought in sweets. Well done to our Under 15 and Under 17 water polo teams. Under 15 team Devon League Champions - our first junior league title since Under 17 team runners up in Devon League.

Devonport Stingrays' victory in an exciting final against Newton Abbot Otters ensured that Devonport won the tournament for the fifth year in a row. Stingrays coach Dave Rostron: In a nail-biting last 2 minutes Devonport's strong defence held, resulting in a final score of Devonport Stingrays 4 Newton Abbot Otters 3, with Daisy Elsmere's skill and determination justifiably earning her the accolade of the Stingray's most valuable player.

But second in their league losing only to the winners made for a great day and I feel it will make them more determined to win it next year. Dolphins coach Darren Green also had much to be pleased about: Throughout the tournament they grew in confidence and improved their teamwork and skill. They played with much effort and determination pulling through to win their final game. They are to be congratulated for their efforts and enjoyment of the event.

Although the spectators and officials got a little damp on occasions, the swimmers felt the water temperature was warm and happily the jellyfish that had been numerous in August were nowhere in sight.

The sight of a double rainbow provided many a photo opportunity. The six intrepid competitors were watched over by safety canoes and RIBs whilst in the water with additional support from other vessels for the timekeepers, Doctor and referee.

We are also grateful for the assistance of the many waterbourne helpers without whom this event would not be possible. Click here to visit the City of Plymouth website for a more detailed report and lots of photos of the event. A fantastic performance by the Stingrays as the teams finish second and seventh.

Very proud of everyone. Devonport claims second place in the final round of our debut season in the Southern Arena Junior League. Host of medals Lewis left and Abi second right pictured with their South West relay team mates. Abi and Lewis, competed for the South West, coming home with a total of 2 golds, 2 silvers for Abi and 1 silver and 1 bronze for Lewis. Both Lewis and Abi collected silver in the 4 x m Freestyle relay. Lewis travelled up with the team South West and got to experience the atmosphere of an Olympic village, whilst Abi, being 12 years old, stayed outside the village and had only a 5-minute walk from the hotel to Ponds Forge.

Both Lewis and Abi got to experience an Opening Ceremony at Brammal Lane walking in to the noise of 15, spectators. Lewis was entered in the 50m Butterfly, 50m Freestyle and m Freestyle. Although he had the disappointment of being disqualified for his Butterfly, he put that to the back of his mind.

Abi was first up on the Wednesday morning. Abi had a different coaching team who were inexperienced, she was very anxious and her swimming hat nearly came off. Abi was catching up to the 22 year old Scottish West Swimmer April McKie, but slipped on the final turn and had to settle for a silver in her m Freestyle.

Next up it was the 4 x m Freestyle mixed relay Abi brought the team in 1st for the 1st leg by 10m, and then the swimmer from Newquay Specials Cornwall had problems getting off the block so when she dived in we were last. Lewis then took up the 3rd leg and brought the team in 3rd before handing over to Adam from Caradon Specials Cornwall , he put in a very fast anchor leg bringing the team in 2nd and narrowly missing 1st spot.

A very well deserved silver for team South West. Lewis's m Freestyle leg gave him the confidence to do well in the 50 Freestyle later that day which gave him a well deserved Bronze.

On the last day he was able to convert this to silver in his m Freestyle. The final day of competition proved the most memorable for Abi. She claimed her first gold medal in the m Freestyle event, pulling ahead of Scotland's Boyle in the last 10 meteres to win in 1: Her battle with the Scottish swimmers continued in the m Freestyle and m Backstroke events.

In the m race, she had to settle for silver behind McKie but knocked six seconds off her personal best time. And after just half-an-hour recovery time, she was back in the pool again and produced a great m Backstroke swim to secure her second gold of the day ahead of McKie and Boyle. As Abi was the fastest m Freestyle swimmer, she also got the chance to meet and swim against four-time Olympic medalist Jessica Jayne Applegate, who, like Abi, is a S14 para-swimmer.

Abi will be representing England South in that event as an S14 para swimmer in the m Backstroke and m Butterfly. Both Lewis and Abi have learning disabilities and have problems adapting to change.

Both swimmers did extremely well in a hard fought competition. Although they were in one of the smallest swimming squads, to pick up the medals they have shows that with a good coaching team at the club and hard work, it really pays off. I was extremely proud of both swimmers who gave it their all.

They were excellent ambassadors for the club and city. Silver medallists Back row, left to right: The team came second to Cheltenham and was rewarded with Silver medals for their efforts.

The team played some exciting water polo and achieved impressive results against City of Bristol , Bradford on Avon , City of Newport , Exeter and Welsh Wanderers In the match which decided the tournament, Devonport came up against a very good Cheltenham side.

The teams were evenly matched and Devonport was unlucky to be on the wrong end of a scoreline in a match which could have gone either way. Swimming will have no sessions from Monday 14th August until Sunday 27th August inclusive. Monthly session fees are unaffected as they are averaged over the year.

If you have any questions, please reply to: Tournament Winners Jasmin and Jessica show off their medals. The team won the Division 2 title, with both of the Devonport girls making important contributions. Centre forward Jasmin made an immediate statement of intent in the first match, scoring 9 in the victory over the South East.

Further victories followed on the Saturday, against the North East and against the North West. The absence of a key attacker on the Sunday meant that a tactical re-think was required, which involved Jessica switching from defence to attack, and she justified the coaches' decision to play her in the unfamiliar position on the wing with two fine performances as the team claimed a win against Scotland and a nail-biting win against Ireland.

Under 13 Tournament Winners Back from left to right: This is the first time our juniors have had the opportunity to compete against the best teams in the North of England, and both our U13s and U15s put in some very impressive performances. They won their group by beating Bolton , Chester and Northampton In the quarter final the team knocked out St. Ambrose, before beating Sedgefield in the semi final, a match in which they trailed at half time.

Devonport faced familiar opposition in the final, with our U13s winning against Cheltenham with goals from Adam, Reuben 2 , James and George. First time in Manchester The players and officials who did us proud in our first appearance at the Manchester Festival of Water Polo.

U15s impress Our U15s put in some impressive performances in what turned out to be by far the most difficult group in the tournament.

Devonport opened with a win against Sheffield. However, against Bridgefield, our team found themselves down after 2 minutes, before showing their character to achieve a spectacular comeback with a late goal, final score They then beat St Ambrose , before facing another very difficult match against Bolton. A win would have seen Devonport qualify for the quarter final as group winners, but leading , Devonport conceded a last second goal and were knocked out of the tournament on goal difference.

In the matches which determined the final placings, Devonport lost to Manchester before beating Sedgefield in their final match. Our Under 15s can be proud of their performances in this tournament and the progress that they continue to make.

They were just one second away from knocking out Bolton, who went on to win the tournament, and made a spectacular comeback against Bridgefield, who finished third. Lots to celebrate Well done everyone - keep up the good work. He will race over 50 and freestyle and backstroke for the South West and will be the first swimmer to gain international experience from Devonport Royal.

The three day camp will begin in July, with further days in later in the year. This is her first step onto the national multi class pathway. Lots to celebrate at Devonport Royal at the moment, well done everyone and keep up the good work! Best Regionals in the club's history Meet our Regionals swimmers. Last season DRSA had seven qualifiers for this championships, but this year while we had 16 qualify, only 12 eventually took to the pool as exams, injuries and other commitments thinned the herd.

Competing over three weekends, the group who competed made this the best Regionals in the club's long history, and showed plenty of evidence to suggest that in the future, it will improve further. This is just the start! Emma Chilton Emma debuted at this level, competing for the first time this season at county level and working hard to get her regional consideration times, Emma qualified to enter the 50 freestyle and the 50 backstroke, but was unfortunately rejected from the latter.

So with just the single event and overwhelming nerves, she managed to gather her composure and step up. It's not an easy level, and at 11 years old it can be a difficult adjustment but Emma did extremely well to be able to set a PB in the 50 freestyle, and come away with a smile and experience of the level. Emma now knows she can compete at the Regional level, and that hard work and training with purpose works - she now has until next year to step up further, to more events, more confidence and more success.

Tia Crews What a couple of months Tia has had. After starting the year on fire with awesome times at Devons, and then breaking the 30 second barrier in the 50 free at Easter, her shoulder injury finally demanded a closer look and she was restricted to kicking in training with very little arm action. Having to withdraw from some events and be careful rather than swim to her instincts, an outside observer might question what was going on.

In fact, she was learning some very hard lessons, and swimming out of her skin despite the injury and the lack of training.

Tia claimed four finals, in the backstroke, the 50 fly, free and backstroke as well. The Iain made her swim to a low stroke rate to protect her injury, and she managed it despite her natural competitive instincts. It wasn't a fast time, but it was a demonstration of her maturity and ability to adapt. The 50 backstroke final was another hard lesson for swimmer and coach, as a misunderstanding pre race led to Tia using the wrong strategy, and resulting in another setback Iain's fault!

Brushing herself down, she stepped up again on the final day, putting earlier disappointments and frustrations behind her to PB in the 50 fly despite the injury and finished 7th in the final going faster again. She then tackled her 50 freestyle, and although being a second off her best which is unsurprising she still finished fourth in the final, and with her PB at easter not being beaten she is still the best in the west.

It's been some hard lessons for Tia, and now she has team events and low pressure competitions until the end of the season - and time to recover, heal her injury and come back fighting with a lot more experience than she did before. Leila Botley Leila is a newer addition to the team, and she qualified for the 50, and freestyle.

Being rejected from the 50 she was left with the and the , one in Bristol and second in Millfield. She started well, swimming to her PB in the free and finding things to work on for the Learning some strategy, she executed the very well, falling back initially but saving herself for the last which she picked up to haul in her heat competition.

It's a good start for a newer swimmer to the club, and with time and adjustment to her new surroundings there is much more to come from Leila! Abigail Daly Abi competed for the first time as an S14 multiclass swimmer in Regionals, and starts down a different pathway to the regular category swimmers. This means while Abi has access to the competition, she also is now competing against different swimmers and so success is different to measure.

While she walked away with three gold medals, she did have to ensure that she beat her personal best times to earn them. It's a good system, and Abi obliged with three out of four PBs to pick up her medals. She has earned a place at the England Para swimming camp in June for her efforts, and will likely be able to contest national levels of competition next season as she follows in Andrews footsteps.

We will also hopefully see Abi competing in regular categories as well in lower level competitions, as she learns more about race craft and takes on the regular category swimmers to improve her own skills.

Jessica Stewart Jessica Stewart, who often pretends she isn't too concerned with swimming was a late but welcome addition to this year's regional contingent and she had probably the best competition shes had all season and after Cities, and Devon's that is saying something.

Picking up a PB in the 50 fly was a good start, and although she is still one of the fastest around over 40 metres, she just needs a little more work on the final ten. The backstroke didn't go to plan, but unlike the normal Jess, she didn't let it get to her to come back the next day and contest the 50 freestyle.

She put in a fantastic swim and was unlucky to miss the final by only 0. James Coleman James, has always first and foremost been a water polo player and his surge to Devon gold was the first time he realised his abilities in swimming were just as impressive as his abilities in the Polo pool. He hadn't raced in a gala at this level before, nor long course and so approached the gala thinking of finals and further success. He swam well, no debate about that but he realised over the 50 and m, there was a step he needed to take in order to achieve his ambitions at this level.

Two long course times, not far off his short course times and PBs when converted was a good return and James can now use this experience to build up ready for next season. The talent is there, it's now over to him. Finley Bowden Finley made his own long course debut at this level, having raced short course at regional's at the end of Swimming in the 50 and breaststroke, 50 back, 50 fly and the IM.

He set new marks for the 50 backstroke and the IM but was just off his times from Easter in his other events. Long course swimming is a different animal to short course, and improving over a short space of time from Easter to the end of April was always going to be tough.

So a good start at Regional level for Fin, and he will now be able to get ready for the Regional Sprints and make an impact there. Jack Lakeman Jack learnt the hard way that a trip around the country with your mates for a couple of weeks, missing training, two weeks before regional's is a bad idea. There has been a learning curve for him this season, and that was in evidence as he laboured through his events, setting down early markers for his new focus which would have to be the end of window gala, the Harwich Cup.

It was a start, and a learning curve and Jack is having to adjust from the way swimming works in his native Malaysia to the UK and Plymouth. He's getting there, and this was an important step on that long road and qualifies him as well for the Regional sprint gala. Charlie Pitt Charlie, like James entered this competition with confidence but without the experience of the level.

He swam well, recording a good 50 breaststroke and a good in which he was unlucky not to make the final. Learning throughout the week, he swam the the weekend after and his time, converted dipped under his short course PB. I bought the LP, too And that date would be Sunday, January 22, We wrote these songs!!! Their biggest hit would follow You still hear it regularly on oldies stations around the country. This one went to 16 in Cash Box but stopped at 27 in Billboard.

We featured THAT tune in our series, too. But in , they would write the TV Theme that would secure their bank accounts for all of the rest of the days of their lives. He says, "The third entry in this series may be the weakest, but few film scholars will want to take time making certain.

In all, four films were made: In return, we were required contractually, to release the song on record, hence the B-side inclusion. As a means of protesting the fact that our government felt that 18 year olds were old enough to be drafted and sent off to war in Viet Nam With America engulfed in yet another seemingly endless, unresolvable war, this seemed like a timely tune to feature today.

It "bubbled under" at in March of DID receive some scattered airplay here … but it pretty much disappeared from the shelves overnight! In fact, I remember seeing the single They had, after all, written most of those hits.

Louis, a concert I was fortunate enough to have attended, back on The 4th of July Weekend, They set an attendance record that night 23, fans showed up despite virtually NO notice or advance publicity and the boys were inspired to continue their "amusement park tour" around the country.

A live, Japanese-only LP followed, but failed to capture the group at their best. During the course of the interview, the boys stressed how they'd grown up and wanted to be taken more seriously as artists.

I cannot help but wonder how much persuading was necessary to get them to drop THAT gig!!! It was filled with fun, upbeat pop songs that perfectly suited the personalities of the band.

If you have a chance to pick up this album, I highly reccommend it While playing in a small coffee house one night, barely making a living, somebody in the audience recognized him and said, "What are you doing here? Don't you know that you've got a Top Ten Record right now?!?!? On other occasions, he would come back, using an alias in the hopes of scoring a hit on its own merits rather than be black-listed as one of the guys who wrote bubblegum pop songs for THE MONKEES.

I'll make all the decisions It went on to become the biggest selling single of At the time, there was all sorts of speculation that he suffered from severe depression People think that he took his life because he was depressed and it wasn't that so much as the fact that he had had a brain aneurysm burst the year before and he was kind of being nursed back to health but they told him that that was a genetic defect that would definitely happen again and he probably wouldn't be as lucky the next time or one time So he took it in his own hands not to let that happen.

In our original research for this series, we found one website that explained the circumstances of TOMMY's death and state of mind this way: According to the information I could gather, his downfall began with a brain aneurysm a few years earlier. He was known to like a drink Tia Maria straight, or Jack and Coke and after this illness, he had to change his diet and his drinking habits.

That's probably what brought the depression on. He was also a good pal of rocker Del Shannon, who blew his own brains out in , and of Elvis Presley as well. This paved the way for the events of November 23rd, Tommy and his wife were living in apartment , and on the morning of the 23rd, he dressed himself in shoes, socks, jeans, and a Days of Our Lives T-shirt, and a smoking jacket.

He did, and she went back to sleep. She woke up a little over two hours later and found him dead on the couch. He had put a gun up to the right side of his head and pulled the trigger. She never heard the gun go off, nor did any of the neighbors. Caroline flipped understandably and ran next door to call the police.

Fortunately, his music will live on for many more lifetimes. In fact, he would return to the music scene several times later under any variety of aliases trying to rekindle his career.

After hours of surgery, he struggled for months to recover. His wife, Caroline, gave up her thriving Montesory School to nurse him back to health, but Tommy could never regain his full energy. His doctors had told him it was only a matter of time before he would have another episode and that next time he might not be so lucky. His wish to never be a burden on his family and his dissatisfaction with his decelerated quality of life, I believe, weighed on his mind and prompted his decision to take matters into his own hands.

In the two or three years after we relocated to L. Teardrop City was written sometime after and was not an option for the first single. I'm not sure where that story came from. But studio records show the song was recorded in October of Well, apparently rather than have to write TWO great guitar riffs, it looks like he wrote one and then simply modified it for this tune!!! Of course, by then it was already too late.

He said, 'I've always wanted to write a song and I've got this idea about somebody answering an ad in the newspaper. We'll write a song and give you half the credit. Perhaps a conflict of interests regarding his status with the TV series??? Everyone in town knew Mr. Webster, He worked at the bank for forty years, And each week Mr. And through the years he thwarted twenty-seven robberies, And each time Frisby promised him a raise.

They gave a retirement party for Mr. Webster, And everyone from the bank was there, They had a cake and flowers ordered special, And Frisby had a speech prepared. And a little white box that held a watch with this inscription: Then came the telegram from Mr.

Frisby locked the door. This is from I actually did one better than that Here's what I got back: Thanks for contacting me. I've been reading some of your entries with Bobby. He's a great guy. Here's my involvement with Caroline Boyce and Bobby Hart and you can decide if you can use any of this for a future blog. I had contacted Caroline Boyce back in about possibly doing a show which would include some of Tommy and Bobby's songs and briefly tell about their career as a songwriting team.
