During the decade that spanned the 1970’s, teddy-boy draped rock & roll band SHOWADDYWADDY had a run of chart success un-paralled by any other artist or band.

In 2005 they were still touring, but by then the heady days of teeny-bop hysteria were long gone. Offered a summer run of 33 holiday camp dates, the band took the fast buck and subsequently entered into uncharted territory.

From experiencing ‘life in the fast lane,’ they were about to undergo ‘a breakdown on the hard-shoulder.’

In this bitter-sweet account Lead Singer (and later manager) Dave Bartram candidly recollects the extraordinary occurrences of 10 weeks in the UK’s bucket & spade resorts, which strained every emotion to breaking point!



About The Title

“The Boys of Summer” is a Fantom Publishing production. You can purchase the Audio CD direct from Fantom Publishing by CLICKING HERE.




Our audiobooks download as zipped files (due to their size and for your convenience). Once unzipped you will find all of the mp3 files for your audiobook named, and in correct file order.  Due to the way Apple has designed iOS, iPhones and iPads don’t recognise these zip files automatically (unlike Android devices).  So, if you buy one of our titles via your iPhone or iPad, there are two ways to find and listen to your files:

[1] Download for FREE iZip for iOS – then download the audiobook using the link provided either on the webpage or the email we sent you. After the file has downloaded click on the Open With option and choose iZip. The app will open and ask if you want it to unzip all the files, say yes. A minute or so later you will have a list of mp3 files in order, and you just need to tap on the one you want to play and it will start playing in the Audioplayer. You can easily play, pause, jump forward or back.

[2] Slightly easier – download the zip file to your PC or MAC, unzip it to a folder you know the location of (such as your Music or Documents folder), then use iTunes to transfer the files in the same way you would a music album.

We hope you enjoy your audiobook and come back for more soon!


Dave Bartram
