By tomorrow I will have probably forgotten most of the jokes and it is not an age thing .... there were so many .... typical of the I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue team but I shall remember at least one .

    Thanks for the reminder Mrs Trellis .

    It was well worth listening to. I consider myself lucky to have been at one of his last live concerts.
  5. My first purchase of a record was his version of "Bad Penny Blues"!

    If I was in London I always tried to get into the Conway if Humph was playing. Nice to see there are now free afternoorn concerts in the Lyttelton foyer of the National Theatre, many of which are jazz.

    Glad to be of help. I listened to it with a friend, and we couldn't stop giggling about Samantha and her 38 bees flapping around someone's head.

  8. Mrs B_R was present when that one broadcast and she too was chuckling .

    I shall now remember two jokes .

    Never been a great Jazz fan but can still remember enjoying some of Humph's playing .

    Saw a programme on TV ... not too long ago .... may have been another tribute ... in which a clip of film , in colour , was shown where Humph was playing to a crowd during the VE Day celebrations .
  9. Episode 3 is now available on BBC iPlayer.
