Comments: I am very sorry to discover that Mr Sidebottom has passed on to the great garden shed in the sky. I worked on his very funny show at Yorkshire Television in late 80's and I can say that he was a gent and very funny off camera also.
For the show we built a new shed for Frank although like Roald Dal the real one was back in his mum's garden.
I think some of this must be a Northern thing, and I still celebrate the equally wonderful stable mate of Frank's singer / songwriter John Shuttleworth from Sheffield South Yorkshire. I was playing one of his BASF cassette tapes last night - on the Chrome setting of course with Dolby digital.
Not forgetting, Mrs Merton and of course Brian Potter, owner / manager of the wonderful Phoenix Club.
Make then smile up there Frank

A top man who had many friends over here, I miss you mate
