Half heard the end of Sounds of the Seventies and it didn't click what Johnnie Walker was saying. RIP.

Frank Delaney.
RIP

He had a radio show on Radio 4 in the 80's interviewing all the top authors of the time.
Always interesting.

RIP John Surtees

When I had my first BSA Bantam I was going to be another John Surtees but lack of skill and fear of painful injury possible death soon disabused me of that fantasy.

RIP Tony Haygarth http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0371304/?ref_=tt_cl_t2

Perhaps not a familiar name but a very recognizable face.
He was in Rosie a police sitcom from the 70/80's written by Roy Clarke.
Something I vaguely remember but I had a sex life in those days and didn't watch much TV.

Rosie seemed a very underrated show.

RIP.

I agree, thought P.C. Wilmot was the stand out character in Rosie. Always good value. Very sorry to hear he has passed.

Brian Matthew has died, age 88. Those of a certain age will have grown up with his presenting radio & tv pop music shows in the 60s and, in more recent years, "Sounds of the Sixties" on Radio 2 on Saturday mornings. R.I.P.

This is the second time he has been announced as dead, but it seems it is STILL not correct - from 19 minutes ago :-

The BBC's earlier announcement that Brian Matthews had passed away was not correct, they have announced. He remains critically ill. pic.twitter.com/e3NvzYEa1R

Sorry about that - only reporting what the BBC had told me.
