ANSWER TO JIM REEVES TRIVIA
Wendy Richard is an English actress, she played the roles of Miss Brahms in "Are You Being Served?" from 1972 to 1985, and Pauline Fowler in "EastEnders" from 1985 to 2006.
In 1962 at the age of 18 she recorded a pop music song; with the British artist Mike Sarne. The song they recorded, Come Outside (written by British producer/composer Charles Blackwell) appeared on the British pop charts in mid-May of '62, eventually reaching No. 1 by the end of June, knocking Elvis Presley's "Good Luck Charm" from the top spot.
In May 1963 Wendy Richard teamed up with hairdresser Diana Berry and recorded a record "We Had A Dream" with the flipside "Keep 'Em Looking Around". On Tuesday 11 June 1963, they went to a BBC radio studio in London to promote their record in the "POP INN" radio program.
They happened to meet there Jim Reeves, who was a guest on that program too. A picture of the was taken and appeared in an issue of the 'New Musical Express" a few days later.
This record didn't made the charts and Wendy persued a career in acting instead.
She was diagnosed with breath cancer twice, and recently told the press media she had terminal cancer. Before she underwent chemoterapy, she merried her partner.
