How Brian Epstein made the Sixties swing by discovering the best of Mersyside from the Beatles to Gerry and the Pacemakers
It has been the song of the Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps song since 1954, where they first performed it as a part of their first field show in 1954. Challenged by the Rosemont Cavaliers singing " Over the Rainbow " in 1957, the corps responded with "You'll Never Walk Alone", and it has been the official corps song ever since.
The ‘Gerry Cross The Mersey’ shows are still proving very popular. Many will have noticed that different support acts have been introduced in the last year to add even more variety and this has been very successful. Gerry of course is the one that the audience has come to see and he never disappoints. From the moment he walks onto that stage and belts out the opening lines of ‘How Do You Do It?’ the crowd is travelled back in time to those heady days of the 60’s and so it is to the finale of ‘Walk Alone’ when everyone is on their feet with hands waving in the air to the most sung football anthem of all time.
