Post 97 - Daryl Somers - Don't Want To Share Your Love / You Look Just Like A Heartache To Me

Daryl Paul Somers born Daryl Scroltch 6 August,1951 in Geelong, Victoria, sometimes referred to as Dazza or Dags, is an Australian television personality. Somers rose to national fame as the host of the long-running comedy-variety program Hey Hey It's Saturday.  As a drummer, he joined a group playing music in the style of Herb Alpert which began under the name Pasquale and his Mexican Rhythm. Under another name, the group appeared on GTV-9’s New Faces, winning their way to the finals, only to be beaten by John Williamson. On 9th of October 1971, Hey Hey It's Saturday started. Somers at first co-hosted with footballer Peter McKenna but eight weeks later, his co-host became the pink hand-puppet Ossie Ostrich. In 1985 Daryl recorded the single here for you to download "Don't Want To Share Your Love" b/w " You Look Just Like A Heartache To Me" (BA-3321) for Avenue Records both sides produced by Brian Cadd and I'm sure if you listen carefully you'll here Brain on backing vocals as well.
