Every Street.jpg

Every Street's a Coronation Street was the name of a record released by Max Bygraves in April 1962. It was the B-side to the song Down The Lane and issued on the Decca label.

The lyrics were written by Jack Grieve who was, at the time, the commissionaire at Granada Television's Quay Street studios and who later as an actor appeared in Coronation Street as Ernie Mills, Dave Smith's clerk at his bookies.

The lyrics referred to the Rovers Return Inn, the Glad Tidings Mission Hall and the Corner Shop and the characters of Ena Sharples and Elsie Tanner though, incongruously for the time, it also referred to houses such as No.8, No. 10 and businesses such as the butcher's.

The record appears not to have made it into the single's chart upon its release.
