A quiz of notes

Musical knowledge

There may have been only seven teams but there was fierce competition between them at the ‘Pop quiz’ organised by the Friends of Old Buckenham High School on Friday 8 October. Hosted by Hugh Lynch, the quiz tested peoples’ knowledge from the sixties to the noughties. As some teams soon found out, it was necessary to have people with a wide range of ages to ensure a reasonable knowledge of the music that was popular over such a time span.
The winning team was in doubt until the final round when the Banham Hillbillies, helped by a subtle use of their joker, crept into first place just two points ahead of their nearest rivals.
