THIS WEEK IN 1975: For her, success is something special

Have your say

You will all remember the late Barry White and no doubt know of Len Goodman, who has been in charge of the Paul O’Grady Show on BBC Radio 2 for the past month.

And what a brilliant show he has put on as well.

The other Sunday he played a Barry White number with that wonderful deep, husky voice and the lyrics had plenty of ‘luuuurrrve’ in them.

At the end Len said: ‘Wouldn’t it have been good if Barry White had been a Wimbledon tennis umpire?’

Then Len mimicked White in a deep voice and said: ‘Fifteen luuuurrrve. Luuuurrrve thirty.’

Great stuff Len. I was still laughing an hour later.
