My Kind of People

From 1995, "My Kind of People" was a show where Michael Barrymore would turn up in shopping centres and invite allcomers to perform on stage. It was a fanastic series while it lasted and I can't understand why it couldn't carry on with another presenter. The one pity is that some of the really awful acts were given far more time than some of the excellent ones. Here's four really good ones featuring youngsters from one edition.
