Saddened

Just spent an hour in the kitchen making pancakes and listening to Eddie Mair on PM — and hearing the very sad news that Linda Smith died earlier today, at the premature ages of 48, of ovarian cancer.

I think Linda was on the panel the day we went to see Just A Minute being recorded in the Theatre Royal, Nottingham, in 2000.  Google backs me up by finding this transcription of the programme.

I’ve certainly always found her funny, and I go back regularly to my recordings of her show “A Brief History of Timewasting.”
