Aha! Thanks for this. I thought it was a really good quiz - a bit different from the usual "pop quizzes". :D

Well done, Jan - this was a cracker.

Actually, I cringe at some of the other answers I offered, more than George Formby. At least he could play the ukelele, not just the wash-board.

And Lowry's first initial isn't really significant, is it :roll:

I suppose you're going to humiliate me even further by announcing the scores soon.

I can hardly wait :cry:
