Jackie DeShannon

Jackie DeShannon is an American singer-songwriter with a string of hit song credits from the 1960s onwards, as both singer and composer. She was one of the first female singer-songwriters of roll period, she is best known as the singer of "What the World Needs Now Is Love" and "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" and, as the composer of "When You Walk in the Room" and "Bette Davis Eyes," which were hits for The Searchers and Kim Carnes, respectively. Since 2009, DeShannon has been an entertainment broadcast correspondent reporting Beatles band members' news for the radio program Breakfast with the Beatles. DeShannon was born in Hazel, the daughter of musically inclined farming parents, Sandra Jean and James Erwin Myers. By age six, she was singing country tunes on a local radio show. By age 11, she was hosting her own radio program; when life on the farm became too difficult, the family moved to her mother's hometown, Illinois, where her father resumed his other career as a barber. After a year, they moved to Batavia, where she attended high school.

In May 1955, while in 8th grade, Sharon Lee Myers 13 years old, was featured in the local newspaper for her vocal talents and personal appearances at community gatherings, the local hospitals, for assorted organizations. According to the Batavia Herald, she had her own Saturday morning radio show Breakfast Melodies on radio station WMRO. Further: Though only 13, the youngster can boast 11 years of voice training and experience and in the past she has toured most of the south making personal appearances, she has sung on radio with a rhythm band for 2 years and has appeared on television 3 times. In March 1956, "Sherry Lee Myers" made "another guest appearance on Pee Wee King's popular Country and Western Television Show" on Saturday evening, March 3, on Channel 2—the CBS network affiliate in Chicago, Illinois. According to the Batavia Herald:Sherry Lee is a busy young lady; each Saturday morning at 9:30 she is on the WMRO radio show, Saturday nights she is the vocalist with the valley's Square Dance Band, Don Lee and his Fox Valley Boys.

She had made appearances with the Pee Wee King Show at Rockford and LaSalle in recent weeks. Following her television appearance this Saturday night, the young Batavia artist will appear at the West Aurora Junior High School auditorium on Sunday, March 4th for three shows, 2, 4, 8 P. M, she attended Batavia High School for two years. She began to record under various names such as Sherry Lee, Jackie Dee, Jackie Shannon, with mixed success. Billboard noted that Sherry Lee Myers, "16-year old C&W singer of Batavia, Illinois," had signed to George Goldner's Gone label in New York as a rockabilly artist, that her "handlers" had changed her name to Jackie Dee, her only release on Gone included "I'll Be True" and "How Wrong I Was", which appeared in both 78 rpm and 45 rpm versions. Jackie certainly sang these songs at the Uptown Theater in Philadelphia on 3 July 1957, at the Paramount Theater in New York, two weeks with Alan Freed's Big Rock'n' Roll Show. However, her interpretations of country songs "Buddy" and "Trouble" gained the attention of rock and roll star Eddie Cochran, who arranged for her to travel to California to meet his girlfriend, singer-songwriter Sharon Sheeley, who formed a writing partnership with DeShannon in 1960.

Their partnership produced Brenda Lee's hits "Dum Dum" and "Heart in Hand". In 1960, DeShannon signed with Liberty Records, adopting the name Jackie DeShannon, believed to be the name of an Irish ancestor, after executives at Liberty thought the name Sharon Myers would not help sell records. In a Fresh Air interview, DeShannon said. Since she had a low singing voice, she could be heard as either male or female; when she found that "Jackie Dee" was too similar to Brenda Lee, Sandra Dee, Kiki Dee et al. she changed it to Jackie Dee Shannon, which people heard as DeShannon. The name stuck. Armed with her new name, she made the WLS Chicago radio survey with the single "Lonely Girl" in late 1960. A string of flop singles followed, although "The Prince" bubbled under at No. 108 in the United States in early 1962, "Faded Love" became her first US Billboard Top 100 entry, squeaking in at No. 97 in February 1963. She fared better with the Sonny Bono-Jack Nitzsche song "Needles and Pins" and the self-penned "When You Walk in the Room" in 1963.

Both reached the lower rungs of the US pop charts, but were Top 40 hits in Canada, where "Needles and Pins" made it all the way to No. 1. "Needles and Pins" and "When You Walk in the Room" became US and UK hits for The Searchers. A version of "When You Walk in the Room" by Pam Tillis topped the country charts in 1994, the song was recorded by ex-Byrds member Chris Hillman in 1998 and by ex-ABBA vocalist Agnetha Fältskog in 2004. DeShannon recorded many other singles that encompassed teen pop, country ballads, rockabilly and Ray Charles-style soul that didn't fare as well on the charts. During these years it was her songwriting and public profile rather than her recording career that kept her contracted to Liberty. DeShannon formed friendships with The Everly Brothers and Ricky Nelson, she co-starred and sang with Bobby Vinton in the 1964 teen surf movie Surf Party. DeShannon's biggest break came in February 1964 when she supported The Beatles on their first US tour, formed a touring band with guitarist Ry Cooder.

DeShannon co-wrote "Breakaway" with Sharon Sheeley, recorded by Irma Thomas in 1964, by Tracey Ullman in 19

PAS Lamia 1964

Lamia Football Club is a Greek professional football club based in Lamia, Greece. It was founded in 1964; the club plays in the first tier of Greek football. It plays. On June 1, 1964, when the representatives of the clubs of Fthiotida decided to "carve out" a common course, A. S. Lamia was established. In order to reach the final decision, it took endless hours of negotiations; the "Queen of Fthiotida", as it is called, comes from the merger of Palamiaki. In 1961 Hellenic Football Federation decided that from the next season the 2nd National Division, at which Olympiacos Lamia would compete at that time, would consist of 60 teams divided into four groups and the champion from each group would take the rally for the First National; as a result, at the end of the 1961–62 championship in a general assembly held by the members of Olympiacos Lamia, they decided to propose to Palamiaki their merger and the creation of a new club and while the answer to the "yellow-black" was affirmative, their suggestion that the new group be called Palamiaky was not accepted and so "marriage ended in divorce".

The sinking of the negotiations with Palamiaki led to the new general assembly the members of Olympiacos, where it was decided to merge the "redcurrants" with the Pamfthiotikos, named Lamiakos, who represented the prefecture in B National in the period 1963–64, but in the same year, the ticket for the category took and Palamiaiki as the champion of the National Team, with the result that Lamia was represented by two clubs in the category. This was the time to create an association that would come from the union of the largest groups in the city. On May 25, 1964, at the initiative of the mayor of Lamia and the football players of the prefecture, a general meeting was held, which did not have the expected result, as it resulted in the creation of two new clubs of the AS. Lamia and the AS Thermopylae, however, a week on June 1, 1964, it was decided that the latter merged with AS. Ghoul. Although the "Cyan-Whites" had reached six times near the First National, they had not managed to rise to the first category.

Their course over the years, combined with the remarkable appearances against the great forces of Greek football in the institution of the cup, they have made PAS Lamia 1964 popular in the prefecture of Fthiotida. PAS Lamia came close to rising in the 2nd National Championship after many years in 2006–07, but finished fourth. During the 2007–08 season and while there were administrative changes, the international player of AEK and Olympiacos, Daniel Batista, was recruited as a coach, but again he did not manage to distinguish himself, winning 13th place with difficulty, ensuring the stay in category 3, bringing 40 points, just 7 over the relegation zone; the following year they were downgraded to D National Division. In the summer of 2012, Lamia merged with Agrotis Lianokladi, who at that time were in D Ethniki, replacing them in the category, renamed PAS Lamia 1964. In the period 2012–13 they finished first in the 4th group in the regional championship, leaving A. O. Karditsa 5 points behind.

At the same time they won the Cup of Fthiotida, defeating Achilles Domokos with 3–1 in the final. The following year they finished first in their group at the Gamma Ethniki, ensuring the rise for the second division in 2014–15. During the 2014–15 season they competed in the 2nd League of the Football League, where they gained the fourth position; the following year they were ranked fifth in the same championship. In the 2016–17 season, PAS Lamia won the promotion to the Super League for the first time in their history in Greek football; the emblem of AS Lamia is the letter "L" in blue or white color as it was decided at the founding of the club on 1 June 1964. This was the emblem until the period 1978–79. At that time the coat of arms with vertical blue and white stripes was used as a emblem; the coat of arms or letter "L" in turn was the emblem of the club until the period 1994–95. In the race season 1995–96, the white and blue stripes were used for the first time and the letter "L" was included in the coat of arms.

In the period 1999–00, when Lamia fought in the Delta Ethniki used the Rainbow Coat as a emblem. That year the team won the championship. In 2008, during Lamias' stay in Pelion for pre-season preparation, used as a coat of arms in a training suit a coat of arms between laurels with Latin characters LFC and 1964, the year of founding the club; the emblem that uses the club today was presented in 2014 and depicts Athanasios Diakos, the hero of Roumeli, in his upper right hand side. The colours of the club are white.

WD ex-LMS Fowler Class 3F

The War Department ex-LMS Fowler Class 3F consisted of 8 LMS Fowler Class 3F 0-6-0T steam locomotives requisitioned in 1940 from the London Midland and Scottish Railway. The Class 3F 0-6-0Ts were selected by the War Department to be their standard shunting engine. Eight engines were prepared and exported to France during the Phoney War and were used to support British forces there. In an attempt to standardise locomotives were chosen from the 1928 batch built by William Beardmore & Co. with the exception of one Hunslet-built engine, No. 7589. Two are thought to have been destroyed by retreating British forces during the chaotic retreat at the Fall of France. Photographic evidence exists showing one such example at Berlin-Tempelhof station in 1953 with Wehrmacht markings and had been in service, overhauled at Cottbus in 1944; the remaining known five were left behind and were subsequently pressed into SNCF service as their 030. TW class on Région Nord, it was decided to adopt the Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0ST as the War Department's shunting steam engine, so no more were required.

After the liberation of Europe, the surviving five were returned in August and September 1948, by which time the LMS had been nationalised into British Railways, they assumed their original numbers within the ex-LMS Fowler Class 3F 0-6-0Ts, albeit with the addition of 40000 standard to most ex-LMS locomotives. The eight engines concerned were as follows: Of these WD No. 9 was sent instead of 1928 Hunslet built No. 7587, prepared for WD service. The following engines more engines were ordered to be prepared for service but were not sent; these were returned to LMS stock, the allocated WD numbers were reused for ex-LMS diesel shunters.
