And I thought the only spirits were in bottles
The only time in my life that football has in anyway been useful or interesting to me is when I heard that my dad’s football club were playing against a team who had Hancock, Steptoe etc writer (one half of Galton & Simpson) as a visiting board member.
I was able to go along and get him to sign my Hancock Half Hour CD boxes. At a later date I went to a Q&A with them hosted by Paul Merton and again used my Dad’s “in” with Alan to get Ray to do the same. A lovely chap indeed.
Keep meaning to do a podcast on growing up listening to Hancock’s Half Hour long after Tony died – wonderful scripts moulded perfect to their star.
I’m off to send a tray of bread pudding to Kuala Lumpur in memoriam.
Damn can’t remember if he wanted sugar on it
This is GLK London signing off, thanks for the laughs
