Clinton Ford ( 4 November 1931 — 21 October 2009 ) probably best remembered for " The Old Bazaar in Cairo. I remember listening to him on the BBC Light Programme

Au Contraire,mon ami !---"I Never See Maggie Alone" is much more memorable ! RIP Clinton, you were somewhat "louche" but always interesting.

I thought CF was probably better known for his version of Formby's "Fanlight Fannie", but "I Never See Maggie Alone" was also very popular. "The Old Bazaar In Cairo" is very funny - great for a pub singaround - was written by Ford, Charlie Chester and someone else whose full name escapes me but the surname was Morris.
