Keith Richards was once a regular on the list, he later spoke of his disappointment on being removed from it.

Diane Oxberry (BBC North West presenter) https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-m ... r-46820379

Massive shock this one as she was on TV right up until December. Must have been a really horrible cancer.

Don't worry, the sweet embrace of death will take them both soon enough. Perhaps they'll crash into each other. Been a while since we had a good KOGOF deal.

Dick Miller (Murray Futterman from Gremlins) has died. :(

That's a shame. 90's not a bad age though.

Jeremy Hardy has died aged 57. I didn't even realise he had cancer. Weirdly gutted about this - one of those iconic voices.

Not as sad as Hardy (as Hardy was so young).

Very sad to hear about this. I saw him perform live at the livestock auction place in Skipton about ten years ago, and was familiar with him from his many appearances of Radio 4.

R.I.P. :(
