Alas, "The Greatest" has gone.  Muhammad Ali has died, aged 74.
He was suffering from a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson's disease.

I preferred him to Vine. I liked his presentation style and his ability to interview politicians to best effect for the listener. He was described as being able to get more out of Maggie Thatcher by pusing her more for answers, and therefore the BEEB always asked him to intereview her.

I remember him on his lunchtime show listening to him as a child.

Ah! 'The Man from Laramie'. No more recipes today then, Raymondo.
JY was Radio 2 to his fingertips - just like Ray Moore before him and Wogan afterwards.
I also can't bear Vine. He alternates between loudly shouting while other people are talking, and sounding like he's about to tell you your dog's just been run over. I generally refer to him as Smeghead...

Brucie's not looking too well either.

Sorry, but his music was suicidal.

Music to slit your throats to, if you had nothing better to do.

I know some, many, loved his music, but I just found it so depressing.

I once heard a dull party described thus:
"There were no scantily-clad birds running round the house or much boozing in the kitchen - we all sat in the lounge and then someone brought in a tray of knives and put them on the coffee table... We just sat there, looking at them and listening to "Songs from a Room"..."
If you can remember the 60's then you can remember Leonard Cohen.
I found his later stuff far more interesting and yes - amusing (albeit in a dark sort of way).

Doesn't Ilya look young there. David McCallum can still be seen in NCIS the original series about to start season 14 on satellite channels. The guy is 83 now and still going strong!

And another one gone - Leon Russell - perhaps not that well known, but Elton John was a fan of his.

I heard his version of the song that he wrote and The Carpenters made famous - A Song for You. I have to say I prefer theirs to his!
