Might I suggest that this thread is deleted, or at least moved? As soon as I see someone's name in the header of this sub-forum I immediately assume they've passed away, so it all came as something of a shock. Let's wish him the best of health.

I really enjoyed his final Sounds of the 60s on Radio 2 recently and hope he'll be well enough for the planned Easter special.

The amended title makes Gary C. look rather callous!

No worries at all. I'm obviously very pleased that the BBC got it wrong.

How very sad. I first started listening to him when he presented Round Midnight on Radio 2 in the 70s but I'm aware that he had a distinguished broadcasting career going much further back, including programmes like Thank Your Lucky Stars. I shall miss him on Sounds of the 60s although Tony Blackburn has proved to be an excellent replacement.

A man I'd been listening to since I was a toddler (and I'm pushing 60 now!) My earliest radio and TV memories involve Saturday Club and Thank Your Lucky Stars then Brian's presentation of Roundabout soundtracked post school teatimes in the 60s. My Top 12 on Radio One in the 70s was always entertaining and my by now grown up self would regularly drift off in a post pub haze to Round Midnight in the 80s. It's testament to Brian's longevity that the show most people associate him with didn't even begin until after he'd done all that lot! Farewell my old mate.
