RIP Des O'Connor

Postby Sam Stone » 15 Nov 2020, 13:12

One of those people who've been part of our lives forever; and with the possible
exception of Jimmy Tarbuck, the last of that breed of light entertainers we grew
up with.

RIP Mr O'Connor

As a 5yo I had a chat with him on stage at a pantomime.

He called me Farmer Giles.

RIP

I’m finding it hard to fully tune in here but as it happens, I do remember doing that yes! (Not something I have thought about / remembered for 50+ years.) :D
