GUEST,Fiddlin' Sid Obit: Richard Whiteley dies of pneumonia (Jun 05) (23) RE: Obit: Richard Whiteley dies of pneumonia 27 Jun 05


Some years ago Eric,a friend of mine and member of Wath Morris performed a solo morris jig on a yorkshire tv programme presented by Richard Whiteley. I think the story was that for some time a particularcouple had been unable to concieve until the day Eric danced a fertility jig for them and lo & behold - a baby on the way !Eric was nervous about his tv performance , but was put at ease and blown away by the kindness shown to him and his family and friends by Mr. Whiteley.
A Yorkshire institution - rest in peace.
