to Frank Ferri for sending me a copy of this Kirknewton Airmans Club
programme from the 1960s. It's good to see that this has survived
for almost fifty years.
band was 'The Jokers'.
They listed on June 19.
There was also a different band, based in Glasgow, named 'The Jokers'.
They played at Kirkliston Air Base
7 days earlier, on June 12, 2011.
Frank tells me that he believes both these dates
would have been Saturdays.
"Kirknewton, American Air
Base, was another great venue for bands in the 1960s. We
played there often."

to David Bain for telling me about this page on the
for Ancestors web site. This page matches dates against days of
for Ancestors web site, we find that the only year in the 1960s that had a 'Friday
August 27' was 1965, so the Kirkliston Air Base programme above must have
been for 1965.
