Happy Birthday Murray

Of all the odd surrogate fathers TV has provided for me over the years you are definately the weirdest and most enthusiastic.

This favourite Murray Walker story (from my other blog in 2013)

In an attempt to play up the comedy potential of the fuddy duddy long time F1 commentator ITV put Murray in a two seater F1 car and blitzed him around Silverstone – and were then waiting on hand with a film crew to get the reaction of this 60 year old man exposed to serious G.

“What did you think of that Murray?!” asked some ITV muppet jamming a phone into his face as soon as his lid was off “Was that the scariest thing you’ve ever done!?”

“No – but was the most exciting experience since my 21st birthday” replies Walker

“What was that?” asks the ITV muppet with obvious disappointment

“A tank battle just outside Normandy”
