tribute to humph
the sad news
Like all the fans of the show, I was deeply saddened to hear the news of the passing of Chairman Humph. He was the linchpin of this marvellous show, conducting it with the skill and grace of his trumpet playing. He was a warm favourite with all generations, both those who have listened over the decades and those who only recently found the show. Here’s to you Humph, many thanks for all your adjudications!
When I hear some news about the future of I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue I will pass it on.
spring series recordings
I was expecting to announce the venues and dates of recordings in the Spring series of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue", but unfortunately I've had to put these plans on hold as Humphrey Lyttelton has been detained in hospital for an operation to repair an aortic aneurysm.
We are unclear precisely how long Humph's recovery period will be, but it seems very likely that the Spring Series of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" will have to be postponed.
Humph is otherwise fine and in very good spirits. However, if you wish to write him a get well message, send him an email to this address with the subject 'Get Well Humph' and I'll print it off for him. I imagine it'll be nice for him to have something to read in his hospital bed.
There's no need to worry if you have tickets for our "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" Tour Show at the Bournemouth Pavilion this Tuesday (22nd April). I'm delighted to say that ISIHAC favourite Rob Brydon has kindly agreed to deputise for Humph.
With best wishes,
Jon Naismith Producer, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue
If you want to send a get well message to Humph send an email with the subject of “Get Well Humph” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Jazz fans, this also means he will not be appearing at the 2008 Axis Festival on 3rd May. More information on this can be found here.
