Humphrey Lyttelton, a man for whom the phrase 'veteran performer' may have been coined, is standing down from his weekly jazz show on Radio 2. I just hope that this doesn't bode ill for the funniest show on radio, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. After all, he's only 86 and you can't afford to lose that much knowledge of the intricacies of the rules of Mornington Crescent.
One little curiousity is that Humph was in the same Eton orchestra as the late Lord Pym.
Who provided more pleasure?
