Mick sorts things out…

Andrew Sachs kindly signed this album cover in Quicksilver Record, Reading nearly 30 years ago. I’m pretty sure his granddaughter wasn’t even born then and I managed not to enrage him, the licence fee payers or the dear old Daily M**l. Look here if you don't know what I'm talking about.

Here’s my advice to all involved:
Jonathan and Russell: Grow up
Everyone else: Get over it (especially the politicians getting involved like Justice Minister David Hanson and conservative ‘Culture Committee’ MP Nigel Evans. Haven’t you people got anything more important to do?)

There, sorted!

I haven’t got a copy of The Fortunes ‘Storm In A Teacup’ so have a Fawlty Towers clip.

Sound advice, Mick. Seems like us mp3 bloggers are not the only ones who the establishment wants to make an example of.
P.S. Did you get the email (referring to much more important matters)?

Mick said...

I have now. Note to self: check Hotmail more often. I never did get round to leaving a message of support on TK but hopefully you got the message after my reply to your comment a few days ago. I never thought you would really quit.

I heard the infamous show as it went out. Never thought of complaining but I hit the 'off' switch pretty sharpish as soon as all the Sachs-baiting went into full effect. Couldn't believe it when they left that message on his answerphone; but I was even more surprised when it transpired that the whole show had been recorded several hours in advance and no one thought to pull the offending bits before transmission. What a balls-up!

Mick said...

You've hit the nail on the head. The whole thing could have been so easily avoided. Even so, I understand the Beeb receeived a grand total of two complaints before other parties with their own agendas got involved.

What a lovely thing to own, all these years later Mick.

Were these 2 obscenely salaried entertainers, drunk or stoned at the time Kippers? I'm struggling to come up with a charitable excuse for their abject adolescent prank calls.

Mr Sachs is 78 now I believe. Seeing the grandaughter in question sell her tale to The Sun and into the homes of the discernable must be almost as wretched for the aging grandad.

I feel for him. However, no-one has died or gone to war or been tortured or kidnapped.

Perhaps a donation of say £250,000to Mr Sachs favourite charity would help a little?

Mick said...

Good point, Dick. I'm the same age as Jonathan Ross and I don't talk to my mum and her friends in the same way I might to you. If I did she's slap my legs!

Kippers said...

No idea, Dick. Sticking two terrible show-offs in a studio like that with no-one to rein them in certainly made for a dangerous cocktail though!
