Re: Que?

Seems he was more at home and had more work on the radio that either television or theatre but yes, a sad loss. I used to wonder if he was related to Leonard Sachs who used to host 'The Good Old Days' but it seems not.

Poor guy never got over that prank call from Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross - those two should never have been let anywhere near the BBC after that.

Don't limit the friends you haven't met with arguments you'll never have.
