Regarding Helen Shapiro, I know a volunteer DJ in the UK named Terry Askew
who is on "hospital radio", a network of stations for patients, and he does
oldies countdowns. He played Shapiro on a recent show with hits of '62,
along with such things as Jimmie Rodgers "English Country Garden", some
novelty songs that hit only in England, and so on (this was on a podcast).
Interesting stuff...Shapiro was only about 14 or 15 when she had her hits,
and in 1963 she had The Beatles opening up for her tour of Britain.
