Orville The Duck r.i.p. Keith Harris
Orville the duck and Bobby Crush and an embarrassing moment. Some years ago I worked with Bobby 'tickle my ivories' Crush on a show that played the world's worst records - we stole the idea from Kenny Everett. We would play a couple of duff records and talk about the history behind them, how they got to be made etc.
Anyway - Bobby usually had the actual record, which I had to load into the computer from 'grams' This particular week he brought in Keith Harris singing Orville's song I started playing the track and it was truly dreadful. I turned to Bobby and said, 'This is utter sh*t I wonder who wrote this crap?' And he answered 'I did!'
Well I didn't know what to say and had one of those hot flush moments your mum gets when she's of a certain age. So I started to apologise. But he said. 'No I don't care because it was a number one and made me a lot of money and every time someone plays it I get paid. #orville #bobby #crush #radio #lbc #keith #harris #death
