"On Sunday afternoons at home, Bob would sometimes tinkle on the electric organ, although that was the day he also had the press to deal with. They would ring him and sometimes, especially if it was the southern press on the home, it was best if you got the grandchildren out of the way until he had cooled down again! But he liked messing about on the organ and could actually play the tune of Amazing Grace, which was Bill Shankly's favourite hymn and which Bob chose when he was on Songs of Praise. As well as his great love of horseracing, Bob liked listening to Harry Secombe singing and he liked looking at the garden. I used to get him to mow the lawn but it would have been rather disastrous if his gardening went further than that. If I asked him to weed the path, everything would go, plants as well!"
Jessie on Bob's pastime
