OK, so check this out:

 

 

No nudists, no perverts, no bad players - not even any lesbians....

 

 

 

.... just a Dutch TV chat-show host on his last public appearance.

 

:unsure:

 

Incidentally, you will need to listen right to the end.

Well, that it was his last appearance is rather understandable...

Cruel!

Well, possibly.

 

However, if I had been faced with a bearded gentleman who spoke as if he were auditioning to join the Bee-Gees, followed by someone who sounded uncannily like Orson Welles with a severe head-cold, I, too, might have lost the ability to retain my composure....

Oh David - thank you for these! I had lost my video of the Little Miss Muffet sketch ages ago. Apparently, neither Britten or Pears ever spoke to the dynamic duo again.

 

I had also forgotten what a brilliant musician Dudley Moore was!

 

Has anyone here ever seen (and heard) the televised concert from the Hollywood Bowl, in which he was the soloist for the Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue? He really did play it extremely well.

IS this for real? :D

 

I hate to be able to understand what the actual conversations are about.

 

Talking about unfortunate incidents in serious situations, I was once playing for a service at a crematorium and the funeral director was leading the funeral. Well it got to the committal and I started playing as he said some words and pushed the buttom for the curtains to draw together. At that exact moment his mobile phone went off and he hastily started scrabbling inside his jacket to turn it off, well so he thought. Well that set me off, I had to duck down behind the music desk so people wouldn't hear or see me laughing, still playing of course. He continued his parting works and as the curtains were almost shut, his phone went off again. by this time I was almost falling off my organ stall. So I can understand the uncontrolled reaction of the presenter in a way.

 

Loved the Dudley Moore sketches. B)

======================

I heard a rumour to the effect that "Leathered Lips" was once spotted on x-tube, until a piece of breaking elastic took out the lights and camera crew..

 

Actually, talking about "Leathered Lips," I came across another one on the internet, who turned out to be a biker from Manchester.....what an amazing co-incidence......no connection I guess.

I can't say I ever remember Edna riding a motorcycle. I do remember she had a morris marina, white 1300 I think it was, might even have been a Vanden Plas. She always had those big jam jar glasses, as her eyesight began to fail they seemed to get thicker almost by the month, and eventually she had to give up driving and be ferried about by Vera as a passenger.

 

Of course, when Vera took them just down the road to Blackpool, Edna got into the wrong crowd. As she was beginning to go a bit batty at that point she stole the wheel from Vera and went tom-boy racing around the seafront and doing handbrake turns, her flowery blouse not properly tucked in the door, she almost ended up with an ASBO.

 

Then of course, poor Vera got hauled into the police station with Edna and given a full body search Joan Fergusson style, which I gather was most unpleasant. Having crashed the car into the tower in a rush to get to see Phil Keshall's organ recital. They tried running from the scene but unfortunately a large group of organists who were waiting in the cue patiently outside comparing their Kevin Mayhew editions for content saw the whole sorry incident.

 

Edna was forced to resign as the head of the local organist association and Vera took to the drink as a result which was not good Baptist practise of course.

 

Edna still kept her specialist interest in split gussets right until her demise, Vera so far as I know is now in a senior citizens home somewhere in Lancashire, Morcambe I think. She's turned a bit sour of late. She hated Dorris - thought she was royalty! Anyway Vera sent her companion Arthur to get some blisteze and he came back with Anusol..she didn't see the funny side so she used it on the cat instead. Cat scratched her badly and now she can't concentrate for long, gets tired. Not much point in phoning her either.
