Angela Morley dies at 83


Angela Morley, who worked at Philips Records in the 1950's and 1960's and indeed worked with Scott Walker, Dusty Springfield and many others has died.

She also wrote several film and television scores.

Even though it seems she passed away last week there seem to be very few obituaries thus far.

Here is the one from Variety.

It's Wally Stott!
What's the odds?

Simon, you beat me to it...Variety obviously never listened to the BBC much in the 50s/60s. Did ICPWAGTBAWLODC?

I've listened to a lot of Goon Show and Tony Hancock...and I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again. With a smattering of Just a Minute.

All long after the fact, mind you.

For the record, I had not heard of Morley/Stott's passing until this was posted here. The entry concerning Scott Walker (upon whom much of his/her brilliance was conferred) is entirely coincidental.

Mike:

I didn't get to hear the BBC in the 60s, seeing as I was but a toddler then.

When I was about ten my father bought one of those big ol' multiple-band radios that picked up absolutely everything. That's when I first heard the BBC (can't remember what I heard, however).
