TV: A is for...

Aspel and Company

'Ask', helpfully pointing to the logo, thereTOUTED AS ITV’s premier chat bunker, here was Lord Asp cosely domiciled in LWT Towers entertaining the great and the good with charm and flair. Made the life of a talk show host look piss easy – until the likes of OLIVER REED and the triple-dickhead beast that was STALLONE/WILLIS/SCHWARZANEGGER started hijacking proceedings for own selfless purposes. Got Thatcher to admit to always “being on the job”, but did a bit too much oogling of lady guests for our liking.

    The episode that sticks in my mind is the Who (not the Keith Moon era Who, or the current era “old fuckers who can still rock the house” Who, but the late 1980s, augmented by half a bloody orchestra, nostalgia circuit Who) sharing a settee with Richard Harris. Harris muttered something about feeling ignored, and Roger Daltrey said something like “Well piss off then”.
