Thread Name: Obit: Tony Capstick (UK) (October 2003)
Subject: RE: Obit: Tony Capstick (UK)
Tony was the consumate entertainer. On form and on his day he could whoop them all. I'm really shocked and saddened. I had provisionally though about asking him to do something at the proposed Sheffield Folk Festival next year. The unfortunate thing about Tony's past is that people talked about the negative things but he was always warm and friendly towards me (he even kissed me at Whitby !!) and I shall miss him. I just hope the b*st*rds who sacked him at BBC Radio Sheffield are hanging their heads in shame today.
