Programme cover for 1967 Golden Disc Spectacular

The finalists in the 1967 Loxene Golden Disc Awards beam wholesomely from the cover of the event programme. This was the third year the awards had been held, and the winning song was 'Thanks to you' by Mr Lee Grant (top left). Grant was always known as 'Mr' to distinguish him from the female performer of the same name. The other artists are (clockwise from top) Sandy Edmonds, Herma Keil, Ray Woolf, the Gremlins, the Avengers, and special guest stars Larry's Rebels.
