I remember it well I used to be dragged in with my ma and dad, I remember Sammy Osbourne and a woman called Phyllis,
and a guy I think worked in the Telegraph think he was called Poncho(nick name I presume)

That would have been Pancho. He was a larger-than-life character ... looked a bit like a Celtic warrior. He worked in the Tele's process department.
Pancho was a wild man when he had the drink on him. I can hear him now saying to me: "Away on wi' ye, ye big balloon man, ye."
By the way, I think that was the Bob Young 'corner'.

'Fraid not. I would have been in my late teens then, and didn't drink in the Horse that often.
