A curiosity from the swinging 60's. The Ovaltiners is a club for children who drink a particular hot malted drink made with milk. This was given away free it says. Just send two and sixpence or half-a-crown to 99 Park Lane in London. There was even an Ovaltine Crunch Bar but I dont remember them. The Ovaltiners first appeared on Radio Luxembourg in the 30's. The original theme was composed by Carroll Gibbons. Some beat group type versions here along with dixieland, tijuana and swing. Played by Eric Delaney and his Music and The Ovaltiners Beat Group led by Eric Delaney.
