  1. We all have our stories and I do like reading yours. Jealous of your Larkin- proximity! I once took the piss out of John Peel and as luck would have it, he was standing behind me at the time. The shame!

    Ps - Edwards Harlene post tomorrow....

    1. Thanks Estelle. Apart from accidentally the once standing on Larkin's foot I only ever saw him at a distance, usually skulking gloomily, a big man, sometimes referred to as "Big Phil". It was said he could often be found at lunchtimes in the staff bar pouring out streams of hilarious insights.

  2. It may be a feeble story but you tell it well. I've never met anyone famous though I did once have a teacher called Lester Piggott who I was convinced was a famous jockey in his spare time...

    1. Thanks. As I said in comment on your blog, it's pretty silly but I had fun writing it.
