Tickle on the Tum

“TICKLE ON THE WHAT?” Overweening whimsy for small children set in the shop of a stereotypical English hamlet (called Tickle) and touched by the string-picking hand of singer RALPH McTELL. A different professional character (postman, teacher etc) dropped by each week for the usual song ‘n’ story treatment. The milkman was played by KENNY LYNCH.
