Croeso :wav:

I lived in Cardiff in the 1960s when Tiger Bay still existed and the river Taff was so full of coal dust you could walk on it after 4 pints of Brains.

Ooops, John Humphrys

I was under the impression that he was born or at least lived in Splott.

Humphrys was born in Cardiff at 193 Pearl Street, Adamsdown, son of Winifred Mary (Matthews), a hairdresser, and Edward George Humphrys, a self-employed French polisher.[6][8] He was one of five children.[6] During early life Humphrys had a bout of whooping cough and concerned that he would be known as 'Dismal Desmond', his mother opted to use the name John. His parents encouraged him to do his homework and he passed the eleven plus exam.[6] He became a pupil at Cardiff High School (then a grammar school), but he did not fit into the middle class environment there.[6] He was an average pupil and left school at 15, choosing not to go to university and instead became a reporter on the Penarth Times.[3][6] The weekly newspaper that employed him served the town of Penarth in South Wales and focused on local news.
