    The late and great Phil Cooper (Coventry area teacher, conductor and arranger) told me that when he was in a forces dance band with Ronnie, they would decide what they were going to play that night while travelling to the gig in an army truck. If they didn't have the music, Ronnie would arrange it there and then.

    I feel kinda sad having read his biography just now. I knew he'd written the theme to Last of the Summer Wine, but not so much other stuff as well! It seems that he was first choice to write the themes for every memorable sit-com of my youth.

    RIP Ronnie.
