He didn’t have any hit records and his picture rarely appeared on teenage bedroom walls. He didn’t set any fashionable trends or challenge the accepted order. He was just what he was – an ordinary man who presented radio shows that featured the music that we liked. He was a friend, a mate of my generation and a friend of our favourite stars – and because of this the stars became our friends too. That is why we will miss him.
