I know - Ray spoke of this a couple of months ago, although he couldn't recollect his name at the time, he speaks of Mortimer.

I just emailed Ray the news.

Thank goodness for YouTube, I was there and had forgotten this. (Then again, I hate seeing pictures of the guy handing Mr. B the microphone.)

I loved Rumpole!
Leo McKern was so perfect as Rumpole that Mortimer began writing the stories with him in mind!
The tie-in here is that McKern was the only actor to appear more than once as "Number Two" on "The Prisoner".

yeah, poor Leo McKern, McGoohan gave him a heart attack, he was so intense.

I saw The Ray Charles Show at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in 1960, and David "Fathead" Newman was introduced by Ray himself. What a night that was, with the Ray-letts tossing their fringes and the music rockin' the house. We were ahead of the curve on that one, too.

Cool.
I got to see a double bill in the late '60s.
The headliners? Ray Charles and B.B. King!
