GUEST,raymond greenoaken Kenneth Williams as Rambling Sid Rumpo (35) RE: Kenneth Williams as Rambling Sid Rumpo 04 Feb 14

All the songs that Rambling Sid parodied were songs I knew from primary school, a few years earlier. That was the point — they were songs that the entire population would have recognised, trad ditties though they were. (Actually, there was one exception to this rule: "Fare thee well my apple-cheeked Betty-o", whose tune is a clever mash-up of several trad tunes.)

And Brian will no doubt be delighted to be reminded that 'glossop" was one of the words in Rambling Sid's vocabulary.
