Britain is a country where one old man has sharp auditory memories of Eden Kane and Billy Fury

Eden Kane was born, Richard Graham Sarstedt in Delhi, India in 1941 and is 69. Billy Fury was born Ronald William Wycherley in Liverpool in 1940 and died at the age of 43 in 1983. Had he lived he would now be 70.

The auditory memory is a wonderful thing. I can have trouble remembering what I did yesterday afternoon, but my recall of the songs and singers of my youth is almost perfect.

Eden Kane recorded 'Forget Me Not' in 1962 when he was 21 and I was 15.

Billy recorded ' Once Upon a Dream' in the same year.

My memory of both songs is alost word perfect, possibly because at the age of 15, I probably fell in love for the first time and so their songs were my songs.
