The Intro And The Outro

So what are David Christie’s Doo Dah Diaries ?  Well it is a project to gather and publish the history of: 
The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band
including the creative histories of
Vivian Stanshall – Neil Innes – Roger Ruskin Spear - Rodney Slater 
“Legs” Larry Smith – Sam Spoons - Vernon Dudley Bowhay Nowell – Bob Kerr
It is an educational research project researching and documenting the history of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and the key members of the band from the early 1960’s to the present day.  The recorded history is progressively published in issues of  David Christie’s Doo Dah Diaries for the project group members to collect.
David Christie personally finances the project and only charges the Project Members the cost of  printing the David Christie’s Doo Dah Diaries.
