    Can we move the Birthday and Death Anniversary posts to their own section entitled "Stuff Nicked From Wikipedia"?

    British Character Actors

    Caroline Dowdeswell, who played bank assistant Janet King in the first series is still around, I believe.
  3. The song was written and originally recorded by Sam Cooke, and has been covered many times. Here's a live performance of it by Otis Redding, Eric Burdon and Chris Farlowe, performed on Ready Steady Go in 1965.

    Derby Dead Pool 2024

    My team has the wrong Michael Russell as my joker. I went for this TT racer - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/northern-ireland/65795090 - and not the Scottish politician.

    Hollywood Possibilities

    It didn't get shown nationally until 1989, when BBC2 aired most of the episodes. It had been shown regionally by some of the ITV regional companies during the late 1950s and early 1960s.

    That's two hits for my team already this year - last year's entry only managed to acheive three.
  7. And Malcolm Mooney and Damo Suzuki.
  8. As does Chris Hillman.

    The 20th Death of 2023

    Then there's the compilcated cases of country singers Hank Williams and Townes van Zandt. Both were found dead on January 1st, but may have died the day before. Bizarrely Townes van Zandt recorded a cover of Hank Williams' "Honky Tonking" on his album "The Late Great Townes Van Zandt".

    Are we sure he is even alive? Could be have headed off to Dingitas under the radar, for example?

    Derby Dead Pool 2024

    My main team is about ready to submit, although I'll delay it until next weekend in case a couple of entries have pegged it by then. I've still to work on the theme teams. I'll stick with the jazz one as it's accumulated as many hits as may main team so far. Not sure what to do about the other one.
  14. I've finally thrown together a list of 17 ill people, two more who have mysteriously stopped doing what they're notable for, and someone who has a good chance of perishing in a nasty accident. I'll wait a few more days before submitting it as I've an inkling that a few may not make the starting line, and I've already lost several picks this month.
