Des (short for Desperate) O'Connor's 88th birthday today.

He was still touring a few years ago.

Some very good suggestions in the last few posts. As previously advised, my father and his mates (with ukuleles and in black face - there is photo evidence) came second to a then unknown Des O'Connor at the Bryan Michie talent show - at the Tooting Granada I think. Which says a lot about both of them. Not that I would wish to dwell unduly on what it says.
