Fred Wedlock

Sad news from the West Country. Fred Wedlock - singer, comedian, local legend - has passed away. A fixture from childhood, our parents remember The Oldest Swinger in Town, while we recall HTV's The Good Neighbour Show.

My dad arranged for Fred to do a gig at Clevedon Bowling Club, sometime in the early '90s. He was great. As we saw him off at the end of the night (in a Volvo estate, if I remember rightly) he left us a couple of his tapes.

I'll have a listen tomorrow morning.
