Humphrey Lyttelton

I was so sorry to hear of the death of Humphrey Lyttelton last week (Times Obituary). I never miss an episode of I'm Sorry I haven't a clue and radio without Humph is as difficult to imagine as radio without Brian Johnston or John Peel (both still missed). My dad and I listened to Kenneth Clarke presenting Humphrey Lyttelton: A Celebration as we drove in to Duke last Thursday. It was a delightful programme and I learnt a lot about his jazz. Today's Simon Mayo (and Daily Mayo podcast) discussed whether the show should go on. I'd like to see it continue, but Humph will be a very difficult act to replace.
