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

    I vaguely remember the name

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Wasn't he discovered on That's Life? He was a huge talent in his day.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    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 ...

    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.
