WARD'S WORLD: Sutch was life
Time certainly moves on quickly nowadays, although while possibly of no major significance to many people, on June 16, 1999, David Edward Sutch (perhaps better known as Screaming Lord Sutch) died at his home - he had committed suicide.
I was reminded of this as I was contacted some months ago regarding an invitation to take part in a television documentary about his life as to my involvement with him, that had turned up via their research, although the fact this was being made by an American network was intriguing.
Initially I had no idea I would ever be meeting him but we were both individually booked to appear on a late night television chat show some years ago - rather inspiringlycalled The James Whale Radio Show - that went out late from (then) Yorkshire TV in Leeds, live on a Friday night which ran for several years.
