This is the music your father’s and grandfathers were listening to, 70 years ago in Liverpool.

The Cunard Yanks, those young stewards, waiters and seamen who sailed the liners to New York and States-side.

They even spoke with scouse-American accents… tomato’s became tomateo’s . It was obviously put on to impress, but they were all great boys and girls who helped make the pool what it is today. Forum Index -> Music
