                    • Joe Meek Produced John Leyton's 'Wild Wind'. It was written by Geoff Goddard,
                      who also wrote the Meek Produced 'Johnny Remember Me'. Both Singles sound
                      like Pop Songs that have been 'Strapped' to a dramatic Western Theme. Soon after,
                      Meek and Goddard fell out. Then Goddard left the Music Industry, and worked in the
                      Catering Department of the University Of Reading. Unlike 'Johnny Remember Me',
                      'Wild Wind' actually is about the Wild West, with its lyrics about The Plains and so
                      on. It reached No.2 in the UK Charts.

                                                  'The Time Tunnel' in the 1960's, and 'T.J. Hooker' in the 1980's.
                                                  He was also one of those Actors, who could actually Sing. His
                                                  'Goodbye Cruel World' Single, is about a Man, who has been
                                                  betrayed by his Girl Friend. He decides to join the Circus, to
                                                  start a new Life. It was written by Gloria Shayne Regney, and
