A year has passed by since the last posting on Robin. All those fans out there just have a drink to his memory and play your favourite track.He was found dead on November 18th 1998 at 7pm GMT. Anyone who would like to see some tributes log in the TheBalladeers website and see the tribute that Nick Kelly did last year - and even add some

Oh yes, we remember him. See the current thread on The Galliards. Not much to say though, really. But I'll certainly have a drink to his memory.

Yes, I remember him with Jimmie McGregor on 'Tonight' - and recently in a charity shop I bought an LP by them - signed.

But I didn't realise that he had died.

I have come across people whose main entertainment seems to be reading obituaries. I just come across them by chance.

I didn't realise either. Many fond memories of him and Jimmy on "Tonight" (Cliff Michelmore, Derek Hart, Fyfe Robertson, Slim Hewitt, Chris Brasher etc).

God rest his soul.

Is it really 7 years? Stop the world I want to get off! Robin's Bleacher Lass O' Kelvinhaugh will live on as his testament forever.

Didn't they have a hit of sorts with "Footba' Crazy"?

My Robin Hall & Jimmie McGregor LP was a gift from a boyfriend back about 1963-4 and has been a treasured part of my audio collection ever since. I lent the record to the guys who became the band "Darby O'Gill" here in Portland, way back, and they seemed to make very good use of it before I eventually got it back. I was so sad, not long after I found Mudcat in 2001, to read a thread about "the late Robin Hall." I would love to have heard him in live concert.

Well, I did hear them (Robin & Jimmy) live, at the Star in Guildford back in the 1970's.

They were excellent, but could he talk ... !!

Robin Hall used to turn up regularly and occasionally sing at the Loft coffee bar in Hampstead (a place the size of a shoe box that rings bells with more than a few folksingers)circa 1960. He was already making records then and was very upbeat and talkative. Shortly afterwards, he had his big UK television success with Jimmy McGregor. The great thing about Scottish singers, then as now, is that no distance existed between them and their listeners. You listened, you met, you talked, you became acquainted. Things are still pretty much that way in the world of traditional music, I think, although I am no longer in close touch.

Forgot to mention Macdonald Hastings and Alan Whicker ("Tonight" programme on the old b & w BBC1), the latter subsequently becoming quite a star in his own right. These were great days, the spaghetti tree April Fool's Day spoof is still often quoted!

The spaghetti tree April Fool's Day spoof was on a Panorama programme with Richard Dimbleby - not Tonight ..... but still emininently quotable! (:-)
