Jim Nabors (Gomer Pyle). Wow, ancient memories there.

I was in a pub decades ago and in walks Keith Chegwin. He had a bucket and was collecting for some charity. Anyway, everyone in the pub started singing Cheggers Plays Pop. It was hilariously funny and I'm sure he'd never heard it before. Anyway, he came back with the retort "No, Cheggers smokes pot" and made a spliff smoking gesture.

At least, I think that's what happened. I'm amazed that he was only 60 - he seemed to have been around for ever. Does anyone remember that show he presented naked? That was difficult to watch.
