Showaddywaddy’s Original “Fan Club”

Fan Club Pen
The original Showaddywaddy fan club ran from 1974 to 1985. It had tens of thousands of members, and was the main way the band were able to keep fans in touch with their latest news (no world wide web of course in those days!)

The fan club sent out newsletters a couple of times a year, and tour dates were also distributed. Fans could also purchase official merchandise, such as pens, scarves, baseball caps, notepaper, mirrors, mugs, puzzles, bootlace ties, badges and posters.

Some newsletters are shown below.
