A legend retires...

No, not sporting click here Humphrey Lyttelton.

Apparently after nearly 40 years he wants time to follow other pursuits before he's too old!

That will be worth recording

Hope he plays 'Bad Penny Blues'. One of the first 78s I ever bought.

  Jim Thing 20:36 17 Mar 08

Sir, you are a man of impeccable taste.

  peter99co 20:50 17 Mar 08

Tuned in and ready to record.

  peter99co 23:35 17 Mar 08

Well that was good. What do we do now? Who is going to follow that?

  Jim Thing 23:40 17 Mar 08

"Who is going to follow that?"

I don't think there are any giants left.

Humphrey seems to have been around for the whole of my life...:-)

Not that I'm not complaining in the slightest - he has always majestically enlightened my musical experiences.

I've yet to listen to it on the iPlayer, I was watching the Peter Sellers biopic on BBC4.

After driving trucks for 20 years you get to know what's on every radio channel at all times of the day & night. Humphrey was an early discovery that I was unsure of at first, but he grew on me through his ridiculous show 'I'm sorry, I haven't a clue'.

There are some other modern gems on radio 2, that in time will be as old as him when they stop broadcasting, Steve Harley, Jules Holland, Paul Jones, Mike Harding,Suzie Quatro (she had a car named after her y'know)... etc.

"Suzie Quatro"

Goes off into fantasy.

(Yes, I know it's sexist, but in some respects I am totally unreformed, and she's one of them!)
