    For those who remember Ed Stewart (Stewpot). it has just been announced he died of a Stroke to-day.

    Many an afternoon. listening to his amusing "rubbish" whilst trying to navigate the back-roads of the South West.

    RIP.

    Pete

    Very sad indeed. :(

    I had many happy times listening to him on Saturday and Sunday mornings, whilst my working parents had a much earned lay in.

    RIP Ed Stewpot. :(

    Sorry to hear he has died, but bloody scary to think Stewpot was 74!

    Too many of the celebs/stars/voices of my life seem to be disappearing these days. Very sad.

    Dear me that's sad. I was watching a review of 2015 and the number of famous faces who'd passed during the year was frightening. Ed will be one for next year. RIP.

    SWMBO had open heart surgery when she was Six, her claim to fame was that Stewpot visited her in hospital and played her request chart song

    Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep

    RIP "Stewpot"

    I had NO idea he was 74 !
    I spose it is a case of my mind placing him at a certain age and that was it ..

    RIP Ed, you entertained a huge number of people

    Shared a table with him on a cruise about three years ago.
    Came across as a simply charming man. No airs and graces whatsoever.
