Jack Good's 'Oh Boy!' was a non-stop Rock'n'Roll music programme which was produced in 1979 and broadcast throughout Europe in 1983. The non-stop music series featured Lulu, Shakin' Stevens, Alvin Stardust, Freddie 'Fingers' Lee, Joe Brown, Les Gray, Johnny Storm, The Rockin' Shades and many others. Fumble were regulars on the show, and you may remember them wearing their famous pink suits.
'Oh Boy' had originally been a stage show performed on Sundays at the Astoria Theatre in London featuring the cast of the ELVIS Musical, that was running during the week. Due to it's success, ATV Birmingham picked it up and turned it into a TV series

Another series, Let's Rock was later produced with basically the same concept and the same artists.
Note: some of you have asked us if the Oh Boy or the Let's Rock shows are available on DVD. So far the series is not available on DVD or video yet. Let's hope for the best...
