About Ian Rogers
Prior to the first Coronavirus lockdown I was, happily, working in a school library where I compiled a weekly quiz with a literary theme for the students which often took the form of anagrams of book titles. Their enthusiasm, and that of a number of members of staff, for this weekly entertainment probably gave me the idea which was later to save, if it was ever there to save in the first place, my sanity. During the long hours of enforced captivity, when it seemed that the only thing to look forward to after getting out of bed was when it would be time to get back into bed, I came up with the idea of taking these quizzes, creating more, and seeing if they could be made into a book. With a bit of research I discovered Amazon KDP and, not long after, my first book NAME THAT BOOK was published. There was no stopping me and this was quickly followed by three other similar books of anagrams with different subjects.
As a change from anagrams I have, also, created a collection of clues to place names in Yorkshire under the title "It's in Yorkshire"
Books By Ian Rogers
This book is a collection of clues to 500 of these names. Some are homophones (words that sound the same that have different meanings), some are straight forward clues and some are cryptic.
This book gives you the opportunity to discover (rediscover) some of the tunes from the second half of the era (1965-1969). The book is split into years and each year contains a list of anagrams made up from record titles which made the U.K. Top 40 in that year.
Anagrams marked (EP) denote Extended Play, records which, in general, had two tracks on each side. you are looking for the title of the E.P. not the titles of the tracks.
There are also some anagrams which are divided by a */*. These are known as "Double A Sides" as both sides were popular. Each side of the */* is a separate anagram of that side's title.
You will also find some anagrams which contain brackets this is because the title contains brackets.
Punctuation such as ampersands, apostrophes and hyphens in station names have been omitted and in some anagrams apostrophes have been added so that the clue makes more sense, it is only the letters you are interested in.
There are three instances of two stations, on different lines, sharing the same name. There are separate anagrams for each of these stations.
