(News) DJ Tommy Vance Dies

Back home, unpacked, bathed and now waiting for pizza.
I'll do a proper update about the trip sometime soonish but I was surfing the news and discovered that Tommy Vance has died :(

For those who don't know Tommy Vance he was a radio DJ as well as an occasional TV presenter. I remember him best for his rock show back in the 80's on Radio 1. Indeed I first heard many great bands on his show including Guns & Roses and (still one of my favourites) Dear Mr President.

His voice was incredibly destinctive and he'll be sadly missed. In some ways he was more influential on my early musical tastes that John Peel was.
