May 15th 1986 – TVAM in the AM


Don’t know what Simon talked about but probably about the boat again. We went down there to see him come out. I got some pic’s and he was brill.

Afterwards we spent the day looking around trying to find all the Duran’s houses and seeing if they really lived there. In which, nothing happened.

Ah well, better luck next time!


Very short entry this time.

TVAM was an early morning chat show on ITV. It was filmed in Camden, so not so far for me to go to as it was in North London. Going to TVAM meant obviously an early start, although we said we were going for when he came out – so that meant around 9 o’clock. (I obviously didn’t have school that day.)

Simon leaving. You can see Yasmin sitting next to him. On some days this was the best picture you got!COPYRIGHT MICHELLE COLDWELL-SIMONS

I didn’t take many pictures that day. In fact I didn’t take many pictures at all in the 80’s. I only have one photo album from that time as we didn’t have a camera in our house back then. I used to borrow my nan’s camera sometimes. She had a disc camera which at the time was very cute. But they didn’t take brilliant pictures and not many people developed the films as the negatives were on what was called a ‘Daisy Wheel’. Tiny little negs they are!

Long time Duran fan. Followed them since 1985 - and that means physically going to see them! I kept a diary from 1986 and thought it may be funny to write them up on a blog. And the profile picture is of the actual of diary. Yes it has Care Bear stickers on it. But this was the 80's. And Care Bears were cute. View all posts by thedurandiaries
