I grew up with the Friday Rock Show...

So, as they say: bugger.

Oh dear, how sad. No more TV on the radio.
I used to really enjoy his shows.

How sad
I hadn't listened to Tommy for years since his move to Virgin Radio, but his Radio 1 'Friday Rock Show' was always required listening when I was younger. I can't remember what his real name was, but (IIRC) he only took on 'Tommy Vance' at the first station he worked for in Los Angeles because that station had already made tapes for another presenter who then didn't show up for work. Another one for the Great Gig in the Sky. :(

I hadn't listened to him for many years, either, but I could always spot his voice in a TV continuity announcement. He also had stints as a programme presenter on Channel Five; he looked old, but very fit.
