like most kids whoo grew up in the 1970s 1980s Jimmy Savile was a kind of hero figure to me , running tv shows such as Jimll Fix it and Top of the Pops. i especially liked his old record club radio show ,was on in the early 1980s, where he told amusing anecdotes about pop stars from Yesteryear
HOWEVER recently theres been a real public outcry ,since he died .Stories abound about him sexually abusing underage girls and the stories are escalating from mild to downright horrific . My own little piece of Jimbo is a plastic plate of his that hangs on my bedroom wall-a good luck charm
To me,he will always be a hero figure, besides now he is dead ,non of it can be proved properly and a lot could be hype.
update in 2013 – i later sold this plate on Ebay , it seemed wrong to keep it . Besides i never actually met him so whoever he gave the plate to it wasnt me . the buyers name was “red 666” which is the devils number ,bit creepy that
