American dreams quiz winner:
Our last quiz winner who picked up two great CDs and some accessories was Claire Hanson who doesn't play in a band but who has been researching her grandfather's involvement in Midlands banding before the Second World War.
She knew that the famous Graffula march that contained the name of an American President was 'Washington Greys' and that 'White' was the colour connection between 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (The White House), a deep voiced soul singer nicknamed the 'Walrus of Love' (Barry White) and the 1927 National Championships of Great Britain (White Rider).
She also knew that the two iconic British television series police detectives from the 1970s who had the same surnames as American Presidents that followed each other into office were Carter and Regan from 'The Sweeny', that Fountain City won the 2009 Scottish Open and the link between the most famous Australian cricketer in history, an opera in two acts by Mozart and the 45th President of the United States of America was 'Don' — as in Bradman, Giovani and Trump.
