    Yeah, the Rod Stewart impression was very funny - his bum got bigger! I really liked him. I remember he used to be a panelist on some show Sarah Greene's hubby used to present and he was really funny on that too.

    I think it was That's Show Business, with Gloria Hunniford as the other team captain.

    I used to love watching kenny everett. I remember my uncle was a ringer for him, so much so that he said he got vip treatment in some places on a few occassions.

    Funny he was indeed, but also extremely right wing- he created a furore when he was doing a live stage show at a time when the then Labour leader Michael Foot had a leg injury and was on crutches. He made some sick gag about 'Let's bomb the Russians and kick Michael Foot's crutch away'- even Maggie Thatcher told him off for that one.
    Like many DJ's, he was all ego- my feelings about him are pretty mixed, funny and very clever, but also a Thatcherite and not above being vindictive.

    I was amused to read about the time he offered a Ferrari as a prize on his radio show, which nearly caused a switchboard meltdown.

    On the next show he wondered what all the fuss was about over a Dinky toy.

    I don't know why, I think it's hilarious. Well, not bombing the Russians, but the Michael Foot bit is.

    Absolute genius. One of the great things about his shows was that you could often hear the crew laughing in the background. I love it when that happens, because you know everyone is having a good time.

    As for Cleo Rocos, I think she was actually madly in love with him. Obviously nothing ever became of that but whenever you see her speak about him she is always heartbroken at his untimely death.

    I miss you Ken, thanks for all the laughs you gave me.

    Cheers,

    Have seen interviews with cleo mate and anytime kenny is brought up she still gers sad and teary.
    It just shows what he meant to her.
    And im certain kenny felt the same about cleo.

    They where just great together.

    I must say the things he did then if they where done today then would not be allowed with the way the country is so P.C.
    But yes i remember the laughing in the backround.

    i have put up links in this thread so check em out mate.
