B SIDE / KNEES Decca
F12283 (1965) Credited to Kenny and Cash.
"Knees" is based on the Sonny and
Cher hit "I've got you babe", and was adopted as the Radio London
Knees club song.There is some confusion over which is really the A side and B
side of this record, with "The B side" generally being noted as the A
side. "The matrix numbers are XDR 36829 (‘The ‘B’ Side’) and
XDR 36830 (‘Knees’) and the labels correctly match the number on the
vinyl" writes Mary Payne - who ran the Knees club, adding "As far as
I’m concerned, this was nothing more than a matrix numbering error at Decca.
The Kenny and Cash Kolumn in Disc and Music Echo and the lyrics of ‘The
B Side’ make it quite clear that it is, indeed the B-side of the single. When
Kenny and Cash talked about the single, it was always referred to as
‘Knees’, and Knees was the subject they talked about most!" The Record
Collector Rare Record Price Guide shows Knees as the A side.

recorded the songs, that were co-written with Stevie Gee. Jaap for a long
timeplayed guitar in ZZ and the Maskers and later became a deejay with NCRV
Radio. In 1970, he also worked as a club deejay in the Kings Club in Amsterdam,
and I did the production in the Sound Push Studio. On the record Little MA
Production is mentioned. M A stood for the two first letters of the name from my
young son Marcel. We chose this name to avoid trouble with the Veronica owners,
that I had produced the songs".

GELUK IS'N STOFIE / TWEE HARTJES Blue Label 015/78 (NL.1978) Probably not deserving of a place in the section, but there is an offshore radio connection in that Manders was involved with the attempted hijacking of Radio Northsea International in 1970. The A side is written by Manders, and both sides are backed by the Jan Theelen Orchestra.
