Janda Mp3 RIP Brian Matthew Video

Very Unhappy to hear that Brian Matthew has passed Absent this weekend at the age of 88.

Just a couple of months ago it was announced that the radio legend would be stepping down from his weekly duties presenting Radio 2's Sounds of the 60s due to Sick health - I even composed a blog bidding farewell and a happy retirement. However, it seems that those recurring health problems were more serious than we thought (perhaps more serious than Matthew himself thought, given his response to the newspapers when his retirement was announced) and the great broadcaster has sadly hung up his mic for the last time.

It really is the end of an era, and radio won't be the same without his wonderfully reassuring, friendly tones and his great music selections.
