Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s clip of Alex Belfield on the Roy Chubby Brown TV Documentary…..
In 2006 Belfield recorded an interview with Roy Chubby Brown for Capital Gold and it ended up on an Channel 4 documentary about Roy’s life.
Alex has known Chubs for years and he wanted to give him an opportunity to say his piece….
Brown was born in Grangetown in the North Riding of Yorkshire. He has a sister named Barbara. He left home at the age of fourteen, spent time living rough and moved from job to job and at one point joined the Merchant Navy.
He served time in a young offenders’ institution colloquially named borstal and also prison.
He later found work as an entertainer in working men’s clubs during the 1960s, first as a drummer and later as a comedy act under the name “Alcock & Brown”.
Brown appeared on the UK television talent show New Faces in the 1970s, coming second to a country and western band. He failed the audition for another television talent show Opportunity Knocks after saying the word ‘arse’ during his interview.
