It was Billy Swan (who?), from forty years ago:



This clip in itself is remarkable, if only to gape in awe at the fashions, and to wonder whether any male music show presenter these days would wear quite as many sparkly rhinestones as Mr Bobby Vinton, introducing this song...

    1. I actually have a Western shirt somewhere (from a long-distant fancy dress party), and I am inspired to purchase a bucketload of rhinestones (and quite possibly a Dolly Parton wig, too)! Jx
