Keith Skues – Deck of Records. Het was in zijn 500ste aflevering van het programma ‘Skues me’ op BBC Eastern Counties Radio, dat Keith Skues vertelde zich ooit ook te hebben overgeven aan het zingen van een lied, met als titel ‘Deck of Cards’. Het dient volgens hem gezien te worden als een persiflage op de hit van Wink Martindale, genaamd ‘Deck of Cards’, dat in december 1959 uitkwam. Deck of Records is in 1960 ingezongen in de tijd dat Keith Skues werkzaam was bij BFBS Keulen en zijn uitvoering is nooit op vinyl verschenen. Wel is het decennia later, in een zeer beperkte oplage, verschenen op cd met daarop tevens de tune van Keith Skues en verschillende van de zo bekende ‘catch phrases’ van Keith Skues. Winterdale was trouwens niet de eerste die de song opnam, dat gebeurde in 1948 door T Texas Tyler. Andere zeer bekende versies – er werden tientallen opgenomen – zijn die van Bruce Low, Max Bygraves en Gerard de Vries.


Keith Skues - Deck of Records. It was in his 500th episode of the programme 'Skues me', that Keith Skues told on BBC Eastern Counties Radio that he once had also surrendered to singing a song called 'Deck of Cards'. According to him, it should be seen as a persiflage of Wink Martindale's hit, called 'Deck of Cards', which was released in December 1959. Deck of Records was sung in 1960 while Keith Skues was working at BFBS Cologne and his performance never appeared on vinyl. However, decades later, in a very limited edition, it was released on CD with Keith Skues' tune and several of Keith Skues' so famous 'catch phrases'. By the way, Winterdale was not the first to record the song, this happened in 1948 by T Texas Tyler. Other very well-known versions - dozens were recorded - are those by Bruce Low, Max Bygraves and Gerard de Vries.
