I got my Edwyn sunspecs courtesy of TV:AM! They used to do a feature at 7.55 where they showed a video of some gawd awful band but sometimes there was a little gem in there. One day it was Orange Juice. The competition question was `Where was Zeke born?` and the prize was a pair of sunglasses from the Flesh of My Flesh photo`s.

I duly sent in my answer and a week later my name was announced as the winner!! Oh, I was so made up. I waited for what seemed like an eternity for my prize to arrive. When they finally arrived they were too big for me. Gutted. I still have them somewhere but they have alas fallen apart.

I was more successful on the bootlace tie front. My mum used to work in that they used to call a gentlemens outfitter - for the discerning gentlemen. The guy who ran it also sold militaria and americana stuff so was able to get my bootlace ties cheap. I thought I looked the bees knees.

Those were the days.....
