Hi, I had the greatest pleasure of interviewing him when he was in the New Theatre,Cardiff,for Radio Glamorgan,a hospital radio station where I once was a presenter. I still cherish the tape, he was such a gentleman,and a tall one too. Very sadly missed. I am wondering weather anyone knows when he appeared in the New Theatre, Cardiff, as I havnt got a date,but I do have his autograph as well. ..xxxx (Stephen Tatnell)
