amazing player with a great personalty.

He has stepped aside as Chairman of the
Basketball Players Association
and is an individual who demonstrates a

Ray Rose

A true friend. What Ray Rose doesn’t know about soul music is not
worth knowing and if you’d like to see him work, then check out
one of his regular gigs in the north west.

For many years Ray presented the awesome Radio programme
“The Sunday Night Experience”
on MFM 103.4 and 97.1 Sunday evenings 7.00pm – 10.00pm.

This show has now been taken off the air

Duncan Smith

1959 – 2001

Another real friend. This is a guy who always went out of his way to help you

Was part of the legendary Dream Team on Sunset Radio, and was a technical wizard with computers and music scheduling systems.
Oh yea! He was into great soul music as well.
What a guy!

Sir Garfield Sobers

Sir Garfield Sobers

One of the greatest cricketers who ever played the game.

Captained the West Indies through one of its very successful periods. Was in charge when cricket was still a gentleman’s game.

A player who would always walk if he knew he was out and one who would never question the umpire’s decision.

Once scored 6 sixes in one over and held the highest test score of 365 not out, for many many years

Betty Stover

A woman of grace and charm who was treated appallingly by so-called fans of women’s tennis in 1977. Betty made it to three Wimbledon finals of that year. Despite losing in all three, she left with her dignity intact.

Betty showed that there is more to playing sport than just winning!

Tiger Woods

Without doubt one of the greatest players
ever to play not only the game of golf, but sport as a whole.

A real gentleman who shows that sport can
be played with grace and dignity

Colin Walters

Colin Walters

The Programme Controller who first put me on the air at Piccadilly Radio.

had a talent for spotting presenters with something to offer.

Always very supportive and constructive, but a very
demanding boss who had me in tears more than once.

Peter Weil

Peter Weil

The Editor of Open Air who first gave me a job on television.
A real TV professional with a weird sense of humour


A woman who took on the broadcasting establishment
in the States and won.

Tremendously successful television personality who has a heart.

Simply the best.
