breezy Never heard of Alex Campbell (237* d) RE: Never heard of Alex Campbell 08 Mar 15


Couldnt get away from the bugger in the late 60s early 70s in the SE London and N kent

He adjudicated a folk singing competition at Whitelands college Wimbledon about 1971

There were a handful of performers

After announcing the winner he reintroduced the artiste to conclude the evening

The sod

He was a folk entertainer and thats what drew in the crowds

Derek Brimo was of the same style but sober and a great deliverer of jokes

The warning to folk club organisers was 'watch out for the traddies,' !!!!

I see him now in my mind's eye, in the mid 70s, sitting in the lounge bar of the Ivanhoe Hotel in Bloomsbury, dressed to the nines. I had to do a double take.

Yes he was a legend in his own lifetime

Hell Yeah

The black cat piddled.... and the white cat sighed....
And the white cat said'cor blimey'
And the black cat said 'You silly sod, you shouldnae stand behind me'


any more memories

So long
