Songs Of Praise - a Memory of Ayr.

I was a pupil at Ayr Academy in the mid 1960`s.The dance studio was then Cathcart Church and I remember our school attending there for an episode of Songs of Praise. I can also remember Ayr Academy taking part in Top of the Form on BBC radio, it was recorded in the boys gym in the Academy.

I remember both events. I also remember my class being placed down the side of the church with the BBC cameras facing in the way. So we never saw ourselves on TV. I suspect the school thought my class would not behave themselves and would bring shame and disgrace. Theyw ere probably right.
