Thank you to Frank Ferri for sending me a copy of this Kirknewton Airmans Club programme from the 1960s.  It's good to see that this has survived for almost fifty years.

Frank's band was 'The Jokers' They listed on June 19.

There was also a different band, based in Glasgow, named 'The Jokers'.  They  played at Kirkliston Air Base 7 days earlier, on June 12, 2011.

Frank tells me that he believes both these dates would have been Saturdays.

"Kirknewton, American Air Base,  was another great venue for bands in the 1960s.  We played there often."

Days of the Week

Thank you to David Bain for telling me about this page on the Search for Ancestors web site.  This page matches dates against days of the week.


Usin the Search for Ancestors web site, we find that the only year in the 1960s that had a 'Friday August 27' was 1965, so the Kirkliston Air Base programme above must have been for 1965.
