Stalwart broadcaster and presenter of R2's "Sounds of the 60s" for many years until recently.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Matthew

"Thank Your Lucky Stars" was essential viewing back in the first half of the 60s...especially when Janice "Oi'll give it foive" Nicholls (from Wednesbury, IIRC) was on the spin-a-disc section!

...and "Saturday Club" on the wireless!

RIP

Terrible - I hadn't realised he'd effectively been shoved off SOTS against his will. Sounds like the BBC didn't want to be paying him on the sick, despite him having given the Corporation decades of loyal and dedicated service. What an unpleasant way to deal with someone.

I'd always listen to SOTS if I could. RIP Brian Sad

No worries. Misinformation, seems to be permeating humanity, at a faster rate, thanks to technology.....A shame we all get caught up, in it, when we don't want to. Sad
