I have just received this sad news from Deanna Norman:
'I have just heard the very sad news that Dr Lionel Stanley, Door Man for many years for the Shoddie Doggie and the Bag O Shoddie, died , at home on thursday the 3rd April 2008.
His funeral will take place at Dewsbury Crematorium On Wednesday 9th April at 2.30 pm.
.Please attend, all friends welcome.
Sorry to be the bringer of bad news.
Lionel was an extremely quiet man, but a devoted and steadfast follower of the music. (In recent years he was the booker for Shoddie Doggie) I hope very much to be able to attend on weds. Maybe some other 'locals" could make it there too?
