Someone mentioned copyright on Dirty Old Town. I mentioned in passing that Theatre Workshop originally owned it. I also mentioned that many of the songs he wrote or co wrote are not owned fully by his estate, but shared with The BBC.

I then in the interest of balance pointed out his good fortune to have a song top the charts internationally at the time such things meant serious money. It was in balance to my relevant comment regarding ownership of Dirty Old Town.

As ever, Jim canít resist any opportunity to wade in to discredit anything I say about his mate and twist what I put. He also canít resist the chance to remind us that he knew him better than most of us.

Sod off Jim. Thereís a good chap. Your nonsense isnít relevant to this thread. Itís about a song written in 1949. Back then most people wore their trousers up to their tits, not just them in folk fancy dress.
