Oh, and thanks for that Steve. I haven't watched Countdown since Richard W? left us and used to see Richard D on TV regularly it seemed on various shows.

Good to know he's still about, as I enjoyed his dry humour.

*EDIT

Got me thinking now, about others that came to prominence in the 70s/80s out of that Folk singer/comedian style that was very popular then -, like the Rochdale Cowboy Mike Harding and the man with the big leek, Max Boyce.

Shame none of them are seen on TV anymore as I always enjoyed their work.

I miss Phil Cool too.............

I saw Jasper Carrot a couple of years ago with Bev Bevan in his band. Still (was) going really well.

And ELO.

Apparently they were in the same class at school together.

Have we worked out what Richard Digance is doing though?

He used to make clever anagrams of the contestants names on countdown - making up a story to fit.
