RIP Mike Foden (Scally McGrew)

Postby Hugh » 21 May 2021, 14:33

I just learned that Mike passed after a serious illness.

He was a lovely, lovely guy who I only had the pleasure of meeting twice but I will hold happy memories of his time with us on Mojo and BCB.

Good speed, Mike.

Horrible news. He was a real rapier wit. Always had an alias waiting in the wings to make sure no mistake went unpunished. Very sad indeed. RIP Mike.

RIP Scally.
I remember when he did a turn on BBC TVs Mastermind, (although I'm darned if I can remember his specialist subject.)

I wonder if he's been on a couple of times. I thought I remember him doing a Twentieth Century Russian painter but here he is doing The Prisoner
