Little Boy Lost

Little Boy Lost, was an Australian hit song, recorded by Johnny Ashcroft.

He composed this song from a lyric idea put forward by DJ, Tony Withers.

Some months after Steven Walls was found alive, Sydney schoolboy Graham Thorne became Australia’s first kidnap victim, later found murdered.

Awarded the first 45rpm Gold Record struck in Australia and also, in 1961, New Zealand’s first 45rpm Gold Record.
