    Can't really call myself a friend of Jack, but when I was playing with Carlton Main Frickley back in 1968 as a raw 15 year old, I used to stop at Jacks bungalow at South Elmsall, I remember Mrs Atherton made lovely salad sandwiches for me after band practice.
    Lovely man - took me a while to get used to the time delay conducting style, he invited me to Mirlees band later on but unfortunately it was too far for me to travel.
    Sorry this does'nt help your quest but your post stirred happy memories :D

    No problem Steve, I appreciate that. Stories are abound of him being a great musician, especially with the CWS Band.
