Once Upon a Time in the West......Midlands!

This year marks four decades since the greatest battle for the Christmas No 1 ever, with Wizzard and Slade releasing two festive 'crackers'. Slade's "Merry Christmas Everybody" charted for nine weeks, way beyond Christmas well into January, peaking at No 1 and selling over two and a half million copies in the process! Wizzard got to No 3 with "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day". Given that Slade hailed from Walsall and Wolverhampton and Wizzard from Birmingham you could be forgiven that this had all the ingredients of a cinematic classic - Once Upon A Time in the West.........MIdlands......anyone? Ahem...Moving swiftly on.... Document Media's radio team is currently hard at work turning around an hour long documentary for broadcast this Christmas on BBC Radio 2 on 1973 complete with the Wombles, Evil Knevil, Watergate and three day weeks!
