Desmond Carrington

I was sad to hear that Radio 2 DJ Desmond Carrington has died aged 90. For years he filled the 7-8pm spot on Radio 2 on Friday evening playing a weird selection of music: you never knew what was coming - some crackily old jazz piece from the 1930s followed by a novelty record from the 60s to an obscure soundtrack recording. Excellent stuff, never a dull moment!

I know they've replaced him with another old veteran, Tony Blackburn, but I don't think he'll ever be a replacement for 'Rocking Desmond'!

Yes, indeed. A wonderfully eccentric dj. He will be much missed.
