Fixes[edit]

  • This is a nice article but it needs some citations and more research. I'e gone ahead and fixed some of the grammar but there wasn't much that needed fixing in this area. I was tempted to do something with this sentence: "UK Eurovision selection, A Song For Europe, performed by Eleanor Keenan and placing third." I didn't mess with it as I have NO IDEA what it could possibly mean. Apparently there's some TV show in England and someone votes on the best song or something like that. Who knows?! A little explanation for the billions of people who speak English and don't watch or care about British television would be helpful. Gingermint (talk) 22:00, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
  • This sentence is under Tours: "During August this year Whittaker became a founder member and president of the National Society of Brown Bears. This is a philanthropic society created to provide financial and moral support to large mammals." Dubious, at best. Adding 'Citation needed'. // Cavalaxis (talk) 22:41, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
It's had 8 months - I've removed it ~dom Kaos~ (talk) 18:09, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
  • And it also needs some editing in the first sentence. Roger Whittaker is NOT a Kenyan Singer, he is a British Singer who only happened to be born in Kenya. This is the same as Spike Milligan, that famous Indian Comedian, where of course he was a half British/ half Irish comedian who was born in India. And the same as Nicholas Courtney that famous Egyptian Actor who starred as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart in Doctor Who. When of course he was a British Actor who was born in Egypt. Could people please get it right, just because someone is born in that country doesn't automatically make them members of that country. It's your parents that make the difference. (In fact in Spike Milligans case he actually considered himself Irish like his father, and didn't think of himself as British at all.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.8.146.21 (talk) 22:01, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Was he really on MST3k? The Puma Man episode I think. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.117.102.31 (talk) 16:57, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Tours[edit]

Roger Whittaker did another US tour in 1983 or 1984. My husband and I attended his concert in Little Rock, Arkansas. Superb show! 69.42.41.254 (talk) 04:13, 22 January 2013 (UTC)Julie Hesson69.42.41.254 (talk) 04:13, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
