It Just Occurred To Me...

Recommended Posts

A hugely enjoyable ramble through odd bits of Humph's life. When he is discussing music, you can hear him in your head, using the earnest style of presentation that he used for decades on his Radio 2 jazz shows. When he is being humourous (which he is, pretty much throughout), he does it in the tongue-in-cheek but innocent style that he cultivated over many years on Radio 4.

 

I was particularly surprised to discover some of his activities away from the radio and as a performing musician. For instance, I had no idea that he had been a cartoonist for the Daily Mail in the 1940s. I also found his association with Radiohead to be quite a revelation.

 

Highly recommended.
