Indexer Notes

This story contradicts the main story by spelling the name of the band as "The Bingoes" and not including Samantha Smythe in the line-up. It is likely that the note at the end of the story asking readers to write if they would like to see more of "That Wilkin Boy" has been updated from its 1969 printing to include Archie Comics' new address.
