The Late Humphrey Lyttleton

It is with great sadness that I heard the news of the passing of Humphrey Lyttleton.

Although Jazz has never really been my kind of music, ( all the right notes, but played in the wrong order ), I came to love him as the compere of BBC Radio 4’s “I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue”.

The game of Mornington Crescent which I initiated in my last post as a “Get Well Soon” message now becomes a tribute to this immensely funny character.

Any passing bloggers are welcome to join in, even if you don’t understand the rules, and I may initiate a “Tribute Tournament” if enough interest is shown.

R.I.P. Humph, and thank you for all the tears of laughter.

    A gentleman and a scholar now gone to the great Mornington Crescent in the sky! Radio comedy panel games will never be the same again.
    RIP Humph.

    Thank you CW, if you fancy joining in the “Tribute game” as a mark of respect.. then please feel free.

    Wasn’t he just special ?

    One super guy.

    re: your comment (May 9th) on my blog: no harm done. I’m well aware of the unpredictable ways of akismet: indeed, I’d blogged about it a couple of days earlier ( http://bahumbug.wordpress.com/2008/05/06/hyperactive-akismet/ )

    Thanks for the understanding, niq.

    The good news is that I did actually get an e-mail saying that your comment was awaiting moderation… so at least something is working right again. 🙂

    Hope springs eternal.
