Entirely off topic, but I was sad to hear that Eli Woods died on 1st May 2014. I have not picked this up in the national media, but happened to hear him with Les Dawson on the radio this morning, and thought “whatever happened to…”.
He was never a star, but when I was a lad was one of those stalwarts who always seemed to be there on the TV. One of those men who looks comical, who did not let his stutter get in the way. Indeed it was part of his timing, yet was never exaggerated for effect.
Many will find this dated, but watch the clip from the tribute article in the GazetteLive here.
