Eamon Friel[59] often writes about his life and experiences. The story behind ‘Takeaway’ as told by Eamon: It was the year I did my A levels. I went to London looking for a summer job. It was the first time I’d been away from home on my own. My cousin ran a public house in Clapham and he put me up for the duration. There was a man who dropped into the bar now and then. He was called Mister Woo. He was London Chinese and the owner of a nearby takeaway. He was also the cook and he needed a chief bottle washer! That was me. Mister Woo had one major eccentricity. When he was cooking, he sang. He sang all sorts of songs - pop songs, show songs, even bits of opera, but his speciality was little jingles he’d make up about the menu. I’d be out at the counter serving. I’d hear Mister Woo’s Cockney tenor drifting in from the kitchen, so I’d join in just for the laugh. We even tried a routine, a little song and dance act, out front when things were slow.
