    A very good puzzle. Tougher than a Cryptic but not as tough as a tough toughie. Too many good clues to pick just one or two. Hint… it does help if you are a child of the 1950s but its not essential. Thanks Bufo.

    I will second Sue’s comments. A thoroughly enyoyable puzzle that was a pleasue to solve. Lots of good clues but I think that 30a was probably my favourite.

    Thanks, Bufo for a nice workout. Even brought the sun out here!

    Favourites 1a and 19a. 8d an all-time favourite both as it was originally and as this, more modern, version. Off to reward myself with a bit of 16d…

        Thanks again. I’ve actually posted a few times before as Dynamic, but had to reverse it when I decided to get a wordpress username that didn’t already exist instead of posting without one!
