Terry Wogan’s Hair Weave and other stories by Graeme Keal
This was Graeme’s second visit and, as with his first, his talk was based on interviews he had held with celebrities whilst he was a show biz reporter. His amusing encounters included those with Eric Morecombe, Frank Muir and Terry Wogan; this was followed by some anecdotes about soap stars from well-known programmes such as Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Eastenders and the one that flopped, namely Eldorado. He owned up to being totally unfamiliar with all of the ‘soaps’ however, their main characters fared better as he was conversant with the likes of Pat Phoenix, Jeff Hordley, Beverley Callard and Wendy Richards and was able to relay one or two yarns about them.
Graeme is an amiable raconteur but his talk lacked lustre and vigour; he even lost his trail of thought at one point and had to check his notes however, he did manage to raise the odd smile and giggle once in a while. Cynics would say his links were somewhat tenuous and, it’s pretty obvious he’s been giving this talk for a few years now so it’s a bit stale nevertheless, he managed to fill the hour revealing much niff-naff and trivia about a few of his 4000 famous interviewees which might be of interest to some.
