He knows the turf intimately.

David and Caroline Stafford bring up the subject of Kenny needing very firm production throughout this excellent book frequently, because he was exasperating to work with. To misquote from "The Sound of Music" - How do you solve a problem like Kenny Everett? How do you keep a wave upon the sand? Everyone tried hard but no-one succeeded, even his most loyal, and often devoted close friends and admirers. The book explores his journey from Crosby, Liverpool to his final hours, a victim of HIV/AIDS, and how his ability with two tape recorders, sellotape and razor blades turned him from the fragile Maurice Cole into the staggeringly wonderful Kenny Everett. It is a cracking read and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in Kenny, Pirate Radio, the start of Radio 1 or the art of disk-jockeying.
