Yes, Dick, that is the Mudcat member McGrath of Harlow (who wrote "The Bovril's with the gravy and the Marmite's with the jam, among other things), and I wouldn't mind having the book if no-one else deserves it more!

I would like this book as my husband sings a couple of Kevin's songs and I know he has not got this book.

I've met a lot of Mudcatters, but Kevin McGrath is one of the nicest ones I've met. Gee, that was almost twenty years ago. He must be an old man by now.....like me.

I haven't seen Kevin for a few years (the last time was at a mini-festival in Bishop's Stortford, after the heart attack that nearly did for him) but he does still seem to be writing the occasional letter to the Guardian newspaper.

He last posted at Mudcat 14th June 2019. I've not read anything that has mentioned his passing in the past few weeks.

"vectis : didn't Kevin die?"

Could you be thinking of 'Keith A of Hertford'? Nov 2018 - I often got confused. Keith\Kevin Harlow\Hertford

Ah! Yes. Quite possibly a name mix up. Been out of the UK for years now. Sorry Kevin.

Have never met Kevin - more's the pity! His "Bovril" song was a favourite of the late, great Frank Harte - and you can't say fairer then that!
