Humphrey Lyttleton

Sadly Humphrey Lyttleton died on Friday 25 April 2008 following an operation. He was a much loved radio presenter and jazz musician and much more. His career covered trumpeter, clarinettist, bandleader, broadcaster, writer, journalist and calligrapher, cartoonist (Daily Mail 1949-53) and chairman of the Radio 4 antidote to panel games, "I'm Sorry I Haven't Clue" from 1972-2008. Our series of webpages on the V8 Website captures much of the fun that was the man, not least his Samantha jokes. More
