I used to like him for being what he was. A naturally, down to earth person and we all know the housewives loved him too! Very Happy

I admit that I liked Jimmy Young, too. I felt kind of sorry for him when Jim Moir axed him after all those years of being with the BBC. It just proves no matter how long you've worked for Auntie, it means nothing. Just look at the way poor Ed Stewart was kicked out the door. Mad

Before Radio 1 and 2 and Housewives' Choice on the Light JY was, of course, a singer. I have a recording from Christmas 1979 of Jim singing with the BBC Radio Orchestra and the Mike Sammes Singers that I've posted on my blog
