In search of The Singing Corner

January 23, 2012

Years back, last century, we worked with two oddbods on Going Live! I don’t mean Phillip Schofield and Sarah Greene; they were, and are, lovely. I’m talking about a right couple of characters called Don Singing and Bob Corner, otherwise known as The Singing Corner.

What happened to them after their brief TV life on the Saturday morning show is unknown. They just vanished. And yet me and Trev always found them good, if slightly eccentric, company. And so we decided to track them down.

That was no easy task, but more on that some other time. We did find them, eventually, and they granted us a rare interview.

We hope to have that up and running by the end of the week. Maybe a two-parter (they don’t half go on). In the meantime, why not enjoy their hit single (reaching no.61 in the charts), Jennifer Juniper with Donovan, accompanied by some exclusive footage.


Twit Relief

August 1, 2011

So, me and Trev were kindly invited to take part in Twit Relief as part of Comic Relief. Twit Relief, where folk could bid for us (and proper bigwigs like Richard Curtis or Lily Allen or, perhaps, Ghandi) to follow them on Twitter. Lots of the famous people also offered extra prizes, like tickets to their shows, or gold discs, or their shoes. We barely have any shoes and we haven’t done a show since 1964. But we wanted to make the effort and so we offered a chance to play pool with us at Spots and Stripes, underneath the arches, next to a boxing club in Waterloo.

Someone bid £371 for us. The fool! But well done, David. And thanks for helping Comic Relief. David brought along his friend Karen, who didn’t know she was going to meet us, and is (pity her please) a fan of us from yonks ago. It was meant to be a dream come true. It should have been like Jim’ll Fix It.

We did our best. Here’s what happened.

And big thanks to Nigel at Spots and Stripes for his marvellous hospitality.

Pot Fish by Sophy, aged 11

Pot Fish by Sophy, aged 11

Here’s some art by Sophy, aged 11, now, one would hope, in her mid twenties. Well done Sophy. Your art survives.

We’re doing a podcats tonight and we have loads of questions from you all. Thank you. We’ll get through as many as we can, and I will be rude to you all. Maybe. That’s me, Simon. Not Trev. He’s nice. But he could turn. he’s just back from holiday- two weeks in the sun- and now it’s just rain rain rain. Who knows what that will do to him.

Please keep on leaving comments, questions, and if we don’t get round to them this time, maybe next time.
