Boxset - Repackaged

Postby bob » Mon Oct 03, 2011 4:52 pm

I am greatful to Chris Ridley who made me aware that the Steptoe Boxset has been re-listed on Amazon. This is a repackaged version with a release date of the end of the month.

Tessa said that Ray and Alan were not aware of it. I have asked her for further details.

Also note that there is a new book just released called Masters of Sitcom by Christopher Stevens about Ray and Alan. Availalbe now on Amazon. I'll put in the usual hours promoting the book. The buggers don't even give me a free copy.

Now my Missus has a website on Agatha Christie and she is always being sent stuff. She even got a book deal; out of it !!!

I wouldn't mind but Agatha has been dead for years. Sorry rant over.

Anther rip off repackaging job probably... OFAH is going the same way and I hae it on good authority that it is an identical set. I wont be expecting anything new on there.

Bob - you mean you're not working on commission???? :shock:

Commission !!!!!!

This is a labour of love mate. As you know with your own website it is hours of slog, frustration and eventual pride just to get a page up that promotes somebody else’s business !! I shudder to think how much it would all cost if they had to pay for it.

Mind you I am sitting here listening to an interview, where Ray G is still bemoaning the fact that Tony Hancock had a fiver of him many years ago, so I don’t think there is any chance of G&S putting their hand in their pocket.

As tight as a gnats chuff they are !!!!
