About this deal

I didn't, I've never believed in trying to put an act on in front of the camera because I think you're wasting your time to do that, for good, bad or indifferent. The readings of children's birthday cards that viewers had sent in was also very popular, with Michael also sending birthday cards personally to those who could not have their cards read on air. Michael presented a weekly show on Saga FM every Sunday, playing songs from stage shows and classic records.

He informs me he has just come out of hospital, having been taken in a few nights before with a suspected heart attack that transpired to be a hiatus hernia. Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed by interview participants are personal and do not necessarily reflect the views of the History Project or any of its volunteers, employees or representatives.Anyhow, he came out and David Johnson was the Head of News at that particular time and he also was Deputy Controller and he said to David, "I've got Glen here, he's going to do the programme so we'll put him on a long-term contract. and so I had visions of this wee fellow inside the lamp doing all the talking and being cheeky to me and that seemed to catch on!

As for Paladin, the lamp was auctioned off and according to Glen now lives in Yorkhill Children’s Hospital in Glasgow. He was always chasing the ladies and so I actually finished up by just scrubbing it because we used to just take bits out because it was all references that I thought, 'a family shouldn't be watching this! Michael made a brief cameo in an episode of the BBC series VideoGaiden, playing himself in a speaking role.Contentious material about living persons that is unsourced or poorly sourced must be removed immediately from the article and its talk page, especially if potentially libelous. For some unknown reason the boom seemed to have a feeling that I can move anywhere, do anything, this thing round my neck curtailed me and, funny, I wouldn't go forward! I think it's a bad thing, you know, but I had this idea that the boom mike, and we'd got Harry, the boom, who was always on it and he followed you absolutely and the sound was absolutely wonderful in those days.

Michael looks back on these days with great fondness and pictures of both Milroy and Fulton feature in the hallway. My double life didn’t bother me until last year when my son Christopher came to the theatre and later told me “I don't like you in this, dad”. The organisation, long since defunct, was often jokingly referred to as Every Night Something Awful.I was guilty about taking the money for doing something that was really enjoyable and, I think, without exception all of the crew say the same thing. Born in Ayr, Michael came to prominence through his pantomime appearances with Rikki Fulton (1924 - 2004) and Jack Milroy (1915 - 2001). The couple married in 1946, when Michael was 19, and have been together since, through thick and thin.
