The Doddy experience reminded me of an LP that I had and played to death as a child, on my mum's old Dansette. Music for Pleasure MFP1368 - Ken Dodd and the Diddymen - provided many happy hours of amusement in my formative years, not least the 'Nikky-Nokky-Noo Song' and the historical epic 'Where's Me Shirt?'. I'm not sure where it went. I think I might have worn it through. However, thanks to the Bay of E and the Royal Mail, I now have another copy. Expect no further bulletins from me for quite some time. I'm away with my Diddy mates: Dickie Mint, Mick the Marmaliser, Wee Hamish, Sid Short, Little Evan and Old Doddy Doddy and all. Now, wheeeeere's me shairt?

Would that be the Main Thinker, Eye Blinker, Smell Boxer, Chin Wagger, Cough Chester, Bread Basket, Knee Knocker, Toe Tapper song?

I don't think that's present here, sadly.

The parallels in our lives before we met are mounting up. I also had a handed-down EP on the MFP "Surprise Surprise!" offshoot label - "We Are The Diddymen" and "Doddy's Diddy Party."
