Subject: RE: Don Shepherd - is he still around
No, despite any views to the contrary, I AM still around. I think any confusion about the probability of my demise stemmed from the the death of a similary-named Norfolk radio personality, whom by the way I never met.
Since a major medical emergency in the mid-1990s, involving sleep-apnoea, coma, severe short-term memory loss and night-time respiration problems and spending some time in hospital, I was reluctantly obliged to cease my singing activities.
My wife Deirdre and I now live in Bungay, Suffolk and as I cannot drive any more, I have channeled my energies into local activities, computer-aided design, internet, etc, etc.
Yes, to all kind friends who enquired, thank you for your good wishes and yes indeed, I do remember Dartford FC, Ham Rugby Club and lots of the other venues I have enjoyed playing in. Strangely, my long-term memory was not affected by the trauma.
All the best, Don Shepherd
