“I was a TV aerial and satellite dish installer before I was an icecream seller but my friend sold icecreams and I decided to give it a go.
Twenty years and five vans later, I still play the song my mate played from his van.
I play the song between one hundred and one hundred and fifty times a day.
Why Teddy Bears picnic? I’ve got other tunes but my mate played it and I just like it best too. It doesn’t drive me mad cos I shut the windows- so I can’t hear it from inside.”
