I've just heard that Angela Morley has died. Another great gone.

Oh, balls! (The most inappropriate exclamation I could think of).

I half-expected you would write the authorised Stott/Morley biog., Louis. (Still do, I suppose).

Maybe one day. Still busy with Gaunty for now, though.

Shit. She were a nice lady.

You did some editing work for her, didn't you, Mart? Time for a posting headed 'The Angela Morley I knew' on your blog. You know that, given half a chance, certain semi-literate parties would be piping up to say that they once served her with a sausage and two boiled eggs in the BBC canteen.

I did. Sad fact, but I photocopied the cheque before I banked it. Not often you get a cheque from a legend.

Not overly fond of sarsegges, though.

I still have a scan of my first pay cheque from the Eye.

Seems to be something of a tradition. I've got a colour photocopy of the cheque I got from the BBC for writing the Top 40 of 1998 show for them.
