Not sure how much of a personality he was over here but sad to report we have lost another cultural giant to cancer.

I'd never heard of him, so guessing this is more a pom thing.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Generally although any Kiwi who spent much time living and working in the UK in the last 25 years will certainly have heard of him. Amongst a great many other things, he was the voice of the BBC breakfast radio show on Radio 2 for a long time and had well over 8 million listeners every day to that.

He was a radio personality with a brain, not like the plastics we get here.
