Thread Name: Roger Whittaker what's he doing nowadays
Subject: RE: Roger Whittaker what's he doing nowadays
Roger didn't write Durham Town so he's not responsible for 'wrong river' reference. He used to encourage TV viewers to send in songs and at the end of a series he'd record the winner and release it. Pretty good of him.
Incidentally, there's nothing too unusual about a boy from Durham spending his time sitting on the banks of the River Tyne, I did it lots. The true mistake is in calling it a town when in fact it's a city and/or a county.
