    This might interest a few on here. Hope they've got some of the classic old adverts lined up!

    If you're feeling ghastly.....

    Where did he end up? He fronted a corporate vid for us about 30 years ago seemed a good laugh.

    Same place as pretty much every local radio "personality" since that time, Reg - on the scrap heap caused by the "delocalisation" of independent local radio by the organisations like GWR (they started the slippery slope), Capital, Bauer Media and Global.
    No such thing as local radio anymore (other than a handful of internet stations).
    And don't get me started on the BBC's diversity policy which has put loads of very capable professional male presenters out to pasture, in favour of useless women!
