"The boys play on our records and get the sound we want, but RSG won't let us use them." Perry Ford added "RSG say they try to get the actual sound, yet they don't use the group. Session men are OK, but blimey, it just isn't the same Ivy League sound." In their defence Vicki Wickham countered "We employ a regular studio group of top session men and we don't want to use any backing groups. For one thing it would cost a lot of money. I really do consider that the men we use are very good and do an excellent job.")

NB The Byrds and Herman's Hermits were penciled to appear. The Yardbirds turned up late for rehearsals so were told to go home. Chris Dreja later told the NME "Our transport broke down, and we had to scout around for another car to get us to 'Thank Your Lucky Stars' for rehearsals. Believe me, the traffic was bad getting there. Really diabolical. And yet me made it only about 25 or 30 minutes late. We were sorry to be behind time but we thought they'd be understanding. No fear. The producer had some very snooty attitude about it all. He didn't want to know - us, or the reason we were late. He was almost savage about it. Why can't they be like 'Top Of The Pops' They're a swinging crowd there, and the atmosphere comes across on the show. They know how tough it can be getting there by road, with a load of equipment."

They also have a talk with the sound engineers before the show as there had been complaints about the sound balance on previous shows. Paul told the NME "We can understand the problemn, After each number they only have about two seconds to get it right. In a recording studio you spend two hours doing the same thing." John added "We're happier than normal, it's worth the limitations if it's a live show. Surely people would rather see us live than just miming on 'Lucky Stars'?)

From Daily Mirror - Don't drop RSG plead fans. Hundreds of teenagers throughout Britain have been protesting since it was announced that the "Ready, Steady, Go!" show is to be dropped in December (writes Ken Irwin)."We have simply been snowed under with complaints said a Rediffuision TV spokesman. But, we are not relenting because we think we have a much better show to take the place of RSG, Elkan Allan, Rediffusion's head of entertainment has been telling us about the plans for the new show. “It’s going to be the swingingest thing on the screen” he said confidently " the new show will make more use of film - we will shoot a lot of it out of doors and we will be using cartoons”. It is unlikely that the show will have a regular compare. “Unless we get a lot of complaints after the new show begins - on 7 January – there is no chance of RSG coming back”

The Walker Brothers - My Ship Is Coming In (NB Gary Walker walked out, fed up of being left out. Talking to Disc in the new year he claimed " I walked out of RSG because they put John and Scott on one side of the room and me the other." Talking to Melody Maker about the same appearance he said "I wasn't in the picture at all. When it gets to my turn they show scenery and dancers. I think the only way I'll get seen on that show is if I go as a dancer."

Johnny Halliday was due to appear but was involved in a car accident, so Dick Rivers was the substitute. The Silkie, The Fourmost and Richard Anthony were penciled in to appear. Richard Anthony was due to perform All My Loving in French. There was also the idea to include film clips of American acts including Ella Fitzgerald. John Lennon claimed "Ella actually sent a film insert but unfortunately it was not up to standard." Despite there being no studio audience, fans turned up to see the group. Talking to the NME at the studio Paul McCartney said "One of the reasons we're doing this show is as a favour to Johnny Hamp, who risked his job by including us in an early TV show when we were unknown." There were six injuries to security men inflicted by fans which included a bitten thumb which required six stitches.

The Toys

The Kinks (Talking in the February 1966 edition of Beat Instrumental Ray Davies claims "We performed live on Till The End Of The Day' in a regional TV studio. They had me standing on top of a small, but high, revolving cylinder. I said I couldn't sing properly whirling round and round - but they insisted. If it'd had something to do with the mood of the song I wouldn't have worried. But it was nothing ... just a toy gimmick they wanted to try out. You get a lot of that." Presumably he was talking about this show.)

From the Daily Mirror ‘And among the personalities who have been invited to enliven the atmosphere in Studio Nine at TV House in London's Kingsway are Raymond Francis, actresses Diana (Avengers) Rigg. Shirley Ann Field and Nyree Dawn Porter, satirist David Frost, critic Kenneth Tynan, and the Mills family actor John and playwright wife Mary Hayley Bell with daughters Hayley and Juilet and son Jonathan’

Interview clips with some of the stars were played between the programmes on ITV all evening. The show was broadcast from Television House, London (the old RSG studio), while producers will use 'vidicons', shoebox-sized cameras for more intimate, informal shots of the guests around the studio. They were referred to by director Robert Fleming as "creepie-peepies."
