    Thanks Eddie, and interesting to see the 70's mixing desks with the easy swop out modules.

    Looking at the film of him doing his final show on the midday TV news, though, it's probably just as well he retired while he could still fit through the doorway. If he's stayed much longer, I fear they would have had to take out a window and get a crane in.

    I liked him on Points of View. It was short.

    No, it was the moleskin trousers that made it appear so.

    It was nice to see pictures of the lovely Paul Walters. I used to be a regular listener , and sometime correspondent, but it turned into a clubby clique rather than a radio programme and so I went back to Today.

    It was so sad to see the great and really missed Kenny Everett. I saw Terry on Jonathan Ross last week and he fondly commented on how Kenny he always bent his microphone on Blankety Blank. Memories from my childhood.

    Kenny on Capital 95.8 in the eigthties :-)

    Infact all the ILR stations were good. Clyde, BRMB, Plymouth Sound, 210 Reading, Radio Orwell, Essex Radio, Devonair -- all with local news, phone-ins etc... possibly the only remaining that has any unique material relative to it's location is LBC in London?

    What a shame that ILR has now lost nearly all it's identity and mostly under one umbrella.

    Down here in Bournemouth we have effectively lost our local sation to Heart - nearly all transmitted from London now.

    j 8, I hope you read it before it was removed. Everett's female character (I said the name and it was considered too rude for BBC eyes) only said, "All in the best possible taste." every time he turned around on his TV program.
