i grew up with my dad playing i'm sorry i haven't a clue, and the last series was still one of the best comedies on the radio.
I've been listening to ISIHAC since I was about 8, and absolutely loved it. He was probably the best thing about it.
Tribute game of Mornington Crescent?
"I'd like to introduce...well, I'd like to introduce Dizzy Gillespie, but he couldn't make it, so here's Barry Cryer"
"Tim Brooke-Taylor isn't here after I said to meet at the end of the M25"
I had him on a sweepstake with Bob Holness and Tony Hart.
Rest in peace you trumpet blowing legend.
that is really, really sad.
ISIHAC is brilliant.
Maybe I'm getting old, but I'm listening to a hell of a lot of Radio 4 and NO Radio 1 these days.
I only ever listened to it because it was what the bus driver put on on the way to school. But then, that was when Xfm was actually good, so there was no need to listen to anything other than that or Radio 4.
back in the Whiley & Lamacq Evening Session days. They used to have some pretty comedy on too, Simon Munnery had a few shows and obviously Peel was great.
I remember when XFM really was great, back before they got the licence and were operating on a trial basis for a few weeks at a time. They used to play Archers of Loaf, The Afghan Whigs, Superchunk, etc...and that was during the breakfast show. Must have been about 1995.
It's sad the way it's turned out, it used to be genuinely great.
i listen to mary anne hobbs and gilles peterson, but that's about it
That's... really sad. ISIHAC is fantastic, and he was a top chap... RIP
to cause me to be sad since arthur lee
i always kind of assumed he'd keep on living :(
