I always love to hear "Sing Little Birdie". The piccolo on the recording was played by someone I know but was uncredited. He lived to a good age didn't he and his speaking voice on the radio always sounded quite youthful even when he was getting on a bit. Tough for Pearl now he has gone.
RIP.

Yes, he did well. I saw he'd died, last week. Him and Pearl were on the TV a fair bit, back in the olden days. Somebody also put a link up, to one of Teddy's old R2 shows. I'll try and find it.

RIP

Over sixty years of married life...how wonderful for them both. Pearl will surely be lost without him,which is very sad.
98 is a good age.

R.I.P Teddy.

(I read the other day that Eunice Gayson has died aged 90..a familiar name to some on here I'm sure)

May she rest in peace also.

I read that they moved into Brinsworth House, the home for elderly theatricals, when they retired. It is in Twickenham and I went to one of their open days decades ago. It is where Richard O'Sullivan lives since he had a stroke some years ago.

Pearl will have plenty of support there.

I remember reading that Richard O'Sullivan was in a home for show business people, after he had a stroke,Eileen...I loved him in all he did...very sad he had a stroke at a relatively young age. Sad

Richard was an altar boy at my local church when I was a child. He was a nice little chap, a couple of years younger than me. He was at Corona Stage School in Chiswick, had a younger brother and very pleasant quiet parents, whom I remember well.

That's nice to hear,Eileen. He always had the kind of face that looked like he was a nice person. Very Happy
