In 1959 (Senior Cambridge) just before the
mid-term holiday, the school held a Talent-time and Tay Theng

I was told that he migrated at an undisclosed location. I miss

In the same year 1959, I took part in the
Redifusion Talentime with my brother Richard on his guitar and

My Pony And Me". The song "Why Baby Why" was
one the songs sang at the concert. You could have heard it from
there. Thanks for kind compliments.

No, definitely someone sang "Why Baby Why"
with accompanist at the Lee Kong Chian Auditorium in 1959 or
thereabouts. I thought it was you, but probably someone else.
