Very sad - I have just seen this notice on Facebook:

 

Medway folk fans may remember Red O'Connell who emigrated to San Francisco and became Redmond O Colonies.He was a singer and raconteur who became a famous town crier. Sadly had a stroke at the weekend and died. Only saw him recently when he gave us a grand tour of San Francisco.I learnt a great song called Railroad Bill from hime. His version was always better than mine.
