1-9 For a Lady Breaker

1981

Gentle Giant and Mr Spock's recording will be played to night, having had a sneak preveiw, I thought it was great, as far as I can gather they need some financial backing in the region of £150 - £200 to get a proper Master Recording. The records will be £1.00 each. It would help with the producing of this record if this could be paid in advance.
Bearing in mind that this Tape is homemade and not good quality, it sounds TERRIFIC.
So help them pay your £1.00 and order your record now.

THE OFFICIAL STORY OF 1-9 FOR A LADY BREAKER
AND THE BIRTH OF SOMEBODY'S MUSIC 
By John (Gully) Milton Somebody's Music 2004


It was a Saturday or a Sunday, either way it was a hot one. I was just returning home from taking
Sam (Somebody's Dog) my black Labrador out for a walk.
Just as I was turning the corner into my road my eyes caught a beautiful girl driving past. I noticed that she was a
CB radio enthusiast like me because I could hear her CB radio. I smiled and waved and she waved back.
I rushed into my house, tuned the CB onto channel 1-9 and said, "1-9 for the lady breaker, the lady who just
waved to the breaker with the black dog", but alas she never came back.

The rest is history, but the start of a musical journey now spanning over 30 years.
I was then, and still am, a songwriter. At that time I'd been writing for around 3 years and was signed to a music publisher.
After finishing my contract, I started writing under the name of John (Gully) Milton
(Gully was a nickname of a friend's little daughter Deborah, who used to say gully instead of seagull).
I was hanging around (and still am today) with a good friend of mine called Steve Hills. We were both involved
in hospital radio and Steve had a mixing desk that I had used on previous occasions. He played an important role in my early music.
Enlisting the help of Mark Stock, another CB enthusiast who I was introduced to via a friend within the FBA CB club,
I penned the now (for me) famous "1-9 For a Lady Breaker".
