Who remembers Jake thackray, the yorkshire born singer/poet and journalist, he had a very quirky baritone voice and sang equally quirky songs...

Wasn't he discovered on That's Life? He was a huge talent in his day.

Huge talent ??

Huge 'something' that's for sure ... he was just a tiny part of That's Life as far as I recall ... A very quirky wordsmith who drove me mad to be honest ...

How does one actually measure talent? Does it have some sort of scale?

Strange voice , strange poems as I recall ... he certainly wasn't to my taste ...

Although I never really 'got' Mike Harding ...

Alternatively I absolutely loved the brummie comedian who's name escapes me

Jasper Carrott? (Probably not him).

The problem is that saying that someone is rubbish, even if they were, could be seen as disrespectful towards that person, and so some people say that someone is great even though they weren't.

No, but Zincubus didn't say he was excellent either.

Why would he say that if he already said not to his taste?

George, sorry to hear you are feeling low, seems a common complaint at this time of year, nobody wants a war of words if you can feel your depression coming on. I'm sure everyone on DYR wishes you well overcoming the feelings which are overwhelming you.

I don't know - it is difficult to think about what people really think of others.

Thanks for the support anyway.

Jasper Carrott !!

Thank you !

I'll try and get some of his stuff on youtube. He did a sketch on the moles in his garden that nearly killed me :)

PS

Who did I say was rubbish incidentally?
May have been the way I wrote it ..

Didn't care for Jake Thackeray
Didn't understand the love for Mike Harding
Really loved Jasper Carrott

No one as far as I am concerned - I just used the word "rubbish" in a generic sense. Don't worry about it.
