Thanks PK,

Looking back I was on full tilt wasn't I? 14 posts in 49 minutes - is that a record Klaus? Pity I didn't do 16 and then I would have hit the 1000th post 8O :roll:  

Thanks for your kind words, not sure I agree with the TV knowledge bit as there are a lot of fans who know boat loads about TV. For instance C5 has every edition of TV Times and I have never seen one 8O He said that the Doctors Of Madness gets a lot of mentions which is a double reason to track them down - I wonder if there is anywhere I can buy copies from :?:

Regarding Ipswich, well here I do have some knowledge; try Rikki Flag at Know Your Products in Ipswich 8O You can ask about the ADVERTS ATTITUDE T shirt as well. You can contact Rikki through the TV LINKS page :D

Thanks again PK and sorry about the old forum battle - I was trying to get some debate going, like we had on the are DTH postings :wink:

The TUTS started with Southwick and The Verge
« Reply #17 on: January 19, 2003, 10:42:40 PM »
Yep - even more evidence (see start of page 1) that Southwick was the start of the TUTS.

So come on Klaus, C5, PK and Fred lets have those memories...please :cry:

The TUTS & Southwick 2 - How It All Began

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Thanks Klaus - This is a post I've been thinking about for a while and now thanks to you know what coming back here it is:

A couple of people have asked me how the TUTS (TV UK Tour Supporters) began and why the Southwick 2 gig has become such a major TV event. It's hard to believe that their are 10 pages of posts on Southwick 2. This surge has mainly been led by, the man getting most of the punters their, my good friend PK  

So here is TUTS 1 - The Prologue.

Quote:
Hi TV and the TVers,

I was aghast to see the latest tour news. Where oh where is the home countries? Just when I thought we were coming out of this SAD time of year I get news like this.

ARSE!!!

There that feels better!

I suppose I shouldn't feel too bad as I did catch Southwick and that wasn't A Bad Day!

Tj

TUTS 2 (The Prologue Continues):

Quote:
Hi Tj,

what should I tell you. For some minutes I saw the new TV tourdates and this time he will play in Paderborn (thatīs where I am coming from.
So I hope that you are now a little bit jealous (hihi)!

But maybe are the lot of tourdates in Germany, Austria and so a reason for you to visiting Germany, Austria or Swiss?

Despite of all I wish you a great day today

Simone

TUTS 13 - Klaus and PK announce new TV forum:

Quote:
New Forum!

Posted by Klaus on Mar. 15, 2002 - 18:15:52

The poll made it clear.
Most of you want a new forum.
Fred, MrC5, TJ and even TV did some testing in the last week and I think we can now launch the new forum.
You can access it here:
www.tvsmith.com/forum

The old forum will still be available for viewing, but posting will be disabled, soon.

It probably will take some to to get used to the new forum, but I am sure, you will like the new features.
If your native language isn't English, you might appreciate the option to choose between English, French, Finnish and German.
If someone needs a different language, post a request in the Bug&Request forum and I will see, what we can do for you.

Klaus

Dont know that I was instrumental in getting anyone to go to Southwick 8O

As it was I ended up just driving TV & Gaye there and back  :!:

There were many others that made the effort The Fleagles,MrC5,Simse & Jurgen,Klaus to name a few.

I think it was more of a group effort in the end. :lol:

Not one of my most poular quizes...

The TUTS first gathering was at The Verge on May 30th 2002 just prior to EARTHBOUND 1 at Southwick.

It was the first ever gig that TV specially arranged for the TUTS (and especially Simse and Klaus who came over from Germany for Glastonwick 7).

TV invited Erik Russell (The Explorers guitarist) as a special guest and they played Last Words Of The Great Explorer and Tomahawk Cruise together. Erik played ELECTRIC guitar.

What a fantastic night that was.

The TUTS first ever gathering.  8)
