Moleskin wrote:That was his mother. Woodrow had four wives.-

First (div): Susan Cox, no issue. She was a fellow student at Oxford.
Second (div): Nora Robbins, no issue. She was his secretary.
Third (1957, dissolved 1966): Lady Moorea Hastings (b. 1928) daughter of the 16th Earl of Huntingdon and a granddaughter of Luisa Casati; one son: Hon. Pericles Plantagenet Wyatt.
Fourth (1966): Veronica (Verushka) Banszky von Ambroz, née Racz, a Hungarian and widow of a surgeon; one daughter: journalist Petronella Wyatt (b. 1968).

Also related to Robert Wyatt, who described him as an "appalling man with a sadistic sense of superiority".


Clearly, hence: Pericles Plantagenet Wyatt

Of course I didn't report the chap at work to the management - the lady just chuckled and rolled her eyes - but should I have?


Just on the basis of that? Fuck no.

If you were worried, have a word with the woman and ask if she were bothered, he's a pest. If she says yes, offer to witness that kind of remark. But I'd be surprised.

Savile got away with unbelievable abuse - then people starting making noises about very minor things.
Now Weinstein has been shown to be a serial rapist/abuser and people are now talking about remarks like that.

Come on now.


I never actually considered saying anything - I just thought the timing was interesting. It was pretty much the same comment (Fallon is reported to have said “I know somewhere you can put them to warm up.”)

I suspect if I'd made a fuss everyone would have thought me a total dick including the lady at whom the comment was aimed.


Ah, right. Timing? Of him saying that? Mebbe. And yeah.

The bloke at work saying it and Fallon pretty much saying the same thing - at the same time... ish

She said that Michael Fallon was just a disgusting person who was horrible to everyone ( :lol: ) and that her mum (married to turncoat Labour MP Woodrow Wyatt) was often chased around the kitchen table by Hugh Gaitskell but she didn't mind because he was 'very handsome' :roll:

Yes it's all the womens' fault for not having a sense of humour! :x
But of course some men - Fallon! - need to be more 'gallant'.

Where do they dig these fossils up from?

Wasn't Tessa Wyatt in Man About the House?

Blackburn never got over it. To make things worse, O’Sullivan used to beat her up quite regularly. Allegedly (not allegedly).

Didn’t Blackburn break down in spectacular fashion on air and beg her to return or something?

Only the greatest three hours of broadcasting ever. I took the day off for Tony Blackburn's last radio one show. It was a warm afternoon, and I carried the gramaphone out into the garden, along with a bottle of gin, and listened to a man disintegrate in front of five million listeners. I seem to remember he only played about four records in the three hours, and he was just rambling on about about how he had lost everything. To be fair to him, he was completely out of it on pain killers at the time, and the BBC had no choice but to let him go. The mystery is much more why they let him do that last show at all. He writes about in his first , and greatest book, The Living Legend ( now a collectors item...)

He is of course a great showbiz mate of myself and Copehead. We coached him how to pronounce a welsh name - a chapter of my life I had completely forgotten until he - my bro - mentioned it here.

Yes, Blackburn famously banged on about it for years. Was probably even in Jackie magazine.

The second part I didn't know. The arsewipe.

Blackburn's a bit of a comedy turn at festivals and so on in garish jumpsuits but he is a very knowledgeable DJ and does a good line in soul.

You damn him with faint praise. He is the father of modern radio. A legend, and a star. My favourite qute of his was that he would , if physically possible, broadcast 24 hours a 7 days a week. Now that is commitment! :)
