Subject: RE: Req/ADD: Give Me a Home Among the Gum Trees
Hi Bob,

I've always thought Rolf came across as an honest, down-to-earth, what-you-see-is-what-you-get sort of a bloke. I have fond memories of watching him on Saturday nights on BBC-TV, in the far-off days when you actually had to have talent to be on TV.
More recently we tried to get Rolf for a special appearance at the Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival but, alas, he was a bit beyond our budget.
And 'Nick O'Tine and Al K Hole' is an insanely catchy song. Now you've reminded me of it I'll be singing it for the rest of the day...
