Just for fun. Whoever answers a question correctly can get to pose the next one...

Question 1.

What did Will Fyffe and Chet Baker have in common?

They both died by falling out of a window. Not the same window, mind.

That is the correct answer. Both were hotel windows.

Will Fyffe died in St Andrews while Chet Baker met his death as a result of falling out of a second storey window in The Prinz Hendrik Hotel, Amsterdam. Both deaths were recorded as accidents.

Your turn for a question. :-)

The recording's 1995, so I'll guess 1996?

What did Sir Herbert Oakely, Professor of Music at Edinburgh University, exclaim when he heard a pig squeak while on a visit to the country?

Did he mistake the pig for a pork pie hat?

I've "googled" the answer but I'll give someone else a chance first. ;-)

Onny and EFC have it. I came across it when checking Sir Herbert out after finding his arrangement of Scots Wha Hae in a student song book. I thought there was something immediately odd about the arrangements in the book, published 1900 or so - only tenors and basses.

Also found this absolutely remarkable stuff:

Sorry, off topic, but interesting, eh?

The answer's in there too, of course.

Perhaps, you'd like another go seeing as I cheated. :-)

Did partanface find it in TheScottish Students' Songbook? Bayley & Ferguson from1897?

There's some good stuff in it.

Not a quiz question.

OK, thanks.

Humph, on I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, made 'innocent' double entendres about the show's non existent scorer. e.g.She has been giving private tuition to singers..the director is keen to see what she might do for a tenor.

Her name?

Now that Humph has gone there's nobody left who knows all the rules of Mornington Crescent.
