2019: This 2011 post about Jody Wayne is by far the most visited at your Eurocovers blog. Now a kind YouTuber has uploaded the song, so you can enjoy it again. (scroll down a bit)
He starred in theatre productions in London as a child actor (Cinderella) and a member of The Grashoppers.
It sounds a bit like a Motown story, but it was while singing while he was working, Jody was discovered by his TV boss. Little Joe and the Travellers were born and they had their own TV show for two years.
Are You Sure can also be fond on the LP It's Me Again from 1988.
Update: Colin Day (a.k.a. Bob Allison) has past away, read more here at Eurovers
