RIP Humph

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7367385.stm

It’s just been announced that Humphrey Lyttelton, Jazz trumpeter and host of I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue has died at the age of 86. This is really sad. Humph’s dead-pan grumpiness was perfect, and Clue is/was one of my favourite radio programmes. Humph always seemed immortal too.

    He was a true renaissance man.

  4. He may not have been immortal but his Guardian obituary was written by George Melly so he outlived his eulogiser.

    I think he’d have liked that.
