I say ‘little’ because Ted wasn’t very tall, but what he lacked in inches he certainly made up with in his character.

As resident compere at the former La Strada Night Club in Fawcett Street in the 1970s, he was a real gentleman and always had the time for a friendly word on arrival.

And who can forget the silken tones of his voice as he sang the famous songs of Frank Sinatra.

Thanks for the memories Ted (alias Eddie Angel).
