Inspired by BBC2's Culture Show, which showed a snippet of it yesterday evening, here is this Sunday's video. It features a 14-year-old Jimmy Page playing skiffle.
A couple of weeks ago, writing of The Zombies and the 1960s, I asked:
How was it that in the middle of that decade geeky grammar school boys suddenly found themselves able to write and perform music like this?
As Mark Kermode's report for The Culture Show made clear, one of the answers is that the skiffle boom had taken place a few years before.
Note too Huw Wheldon's act as a sympathetic but bemused headmaster. YouTube says this clip comes from "The Huw Wheldon Show", but I suspect it is really taken from his BBC arts programme Monitor.
