Slapstick Funny Man Dies
Comedian Charlie Drake has died aged 81 following a long illness caused by two strokes. Announcing his death, Laurie Mansfield, Drake's manager for 37 years, said he was the "last of the great slapstick comedians". He starred in many television shows and films during the 1960s and 1970s and had a hit with the comic song My Boomerang Won't Come Back.
Drake died in his sleep at a home for entertainers in Twickenham, west London, where he had lived for about two years.

We wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and just in case you were wondering we have no live music listed for Christmas Day. Sing some carols instead!
