LENNIE Wesley, one half of the 60s folk duo The Foggy Dew-O, has died aged 56.
Lennie, who lived in Handsworth, Sheffield, formed the group with Danny Clark, now better known as a watercolour artist using his real first name Granville.
The pair made their first television appearance in 1967 and landed a record deal with Decca.
They were the first dual presenters on BBC Radio 2 with their own series My Kinda Folk. They were also regular guests on the BBC's popular weekly live series Country Meets Folk.
They were also regulars on Yorkshire TV's Calendar.
Their records sold well and they were on the brink of national fame when Lennie was rushed to hospital with a rare lung disease and was in intensive care for months.
It was an illness from which he never really recovered.
They appeared on television and radio about 500 times during their career. But they decided to end Foggy Dew-O in December, 1973.
Lennie formed the trio Wesley, Park and Smith in 1975, mainly playing around the folk scene and in working men's clubs.
They eventually folded in the late 1970s.
