|A diamond geezer - Sir Jimmy Savile|
I liked him for his Jim'll Fix It show where he literally made dreams come true, not only for children but adults too. His appearances on Top of the Pops were prolific, being there at the start and at the end. But I will remember him for his Speakeasy show on Radio1 and his chart show featuring one chart from, say 1961, and then one from 1975. There was a rarity in hearing those songs, not often played. Now they can be obtained from iTunes! He was not digital. He was hands on discs.
Mainly an enigma, thoroughly Yorkshire in being down to earth and a genuine one-off. Owz about that, then!
Postscript - I see he was 2 days short of his 85th birthday.
