Buck Polley and Wizz Jones

Its Christmas 1960 and a must-have gadget was a "stylish" portable transistor radio. Wizz and chum along with about a hundred students and layabouts landed a doddle of an engagement. Dressed as Father Christmas and toting sandwich boards proclaiming "Pick a Pye for Christmas!" whilst the little miracle boxes played jolly Christmas tunes in lowfidelity, they were employed to tramp the streets of London's West End. But it was a cold Christmas and our lucky Santas mostly holed up in various transport cafes and bars thus leaving precious little space for the digruntled regulars!
