This was one the first shows recorded at the then very new London Weeekend Studios next to the Thames. It was shown at 9pm Christmas Eve (ULTRA PRIME TIME!!) The producer was Bruce Gower & his p.a. was Vicki Ford (Both truly wonderful people) The musicians were sent a telegram (!) & given 3 days to learn Chopin's C# minor waltz. The first two rehersals were held at a big.empty room in a north London tower block. There was just an upright piano there. The 3rd day had a rehersal in the brand,spanking new LWT big studio. This scene was as the start of the show, like it was still a rehersal. There was only one take and the mistakes were kept in because Victor`s ad-lib comments after these blips were so priceless. By now you must be thinking how does this guy know so much about this? The answer is simple, I am Michael!! My real name is John Pochin. I studied at the Royal Academy of Music. 10-18 yrs as a junior, then full time gaining a GRSM, LRAM & PGCE. I am now 57 yrs old and I'm still loving every minute as a album producer, composer, arranger,performer, lecturer etc. Basically anything to do with music and any style. I love 'Happy", I just wish I could touch the the whole world like that super cool fabulous song!! So lastly, tq so much for all the comments. I'm so happy that after all these years new generations of music lovers are still finding this as funny as I did when we shot it. One request; the next time I do something like this I want to sit down to perform Chopin. If you stand up it is so bloody hard!!! All your weight on your left foot because you need your right foot for the sustain pedal.But at 14 yrs old, the world is a fantastic place and you just do it. No nerves at all. I'm from Leicester, but I've lived in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia for nearly 30 yrs because I love it hot,surrounded by wonderful people and woderful cultures, all blending seemlessly together. So inspiring!!!! Tq you all once more. Stay cool!! P.S My late dad in one brainy moment noticed that our family name Pochin is actually a anogram of Chopin! So I guess I just had to play the piano. Keep rocking guys!!!!!
