  1. Great video and nice to see the song's still popular. OMG I feel old, as I saw the Foundations perform BMUB live at the Silver Blades ice rink in Liverpool, when it was in the charts and I was 12 years old! New uke review next week (if it arrives that is!) See you soon , C x

  2. I am in a quandary....don't know what my banjolele is, seems a hybrid between Dallas D (has a D headstock) and Dallas E ( body and rest of construction -but not gold plated!!)Have looked on all the sites and the body is definitely E with the 12 rods and arrow patterned resonator...do I have a rarity?
