Sorry I think I referred to John Comer as Frank. My eldest brother - who used to hang out with John - is called Frank!

In the 60,s there was a TV ad for esso blue parrafin. Show bis characters made a lot of guesses as to whose voice was behind the ad. Strong contenders were, Roy Castle, Harry Gunn(Manchester club and theatre agent) and John Comer. John was avery modest chap. When we were celebrity guests artistes at the BAF club in Blackpool circa 1980, Johns opening line on stage was " I dont know what I'm doing here, I,m not famous!" I said hi to his brother Tony on Sretford Rd when visiting UK 2002. You can still hear him sing on Friday evenings at the Urmston Mens Club with his lovely talented wife June.
