Dedication Friday: ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Any More” from Maureen Kershaw

Dear all,

I would like to put forward the following song with the accompanying story in memory of my Dad.

‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Any More” Sung by The Walker Brothers.

In 1966 my Dad suddenly became ill on Good Friday. After Easter the Doctor sent him straight to the LGI where he was operated on the following day. He had bowel and liver cancer, for which there was no treatment then, and was given between 6 weeks and 6 months to live. I was distraught.

I’d just bought the Walker Bros. record and I played it over and over again that day. Dad just wanted to see England win the World Cup which he did on July 30th. On August 30th he passed away. I played my record again – ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Any More’ but the sun did shine again – as it always does.

Lovely tune Maureen and words, and may the sun continue to shine for you.
