    Vance had a great voice - pity that in later years he was limited to the Radio 1 Friday Rock Show.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Agreed, he had a great voice for rock radio and he knew his stuff.

    He did the Top 40 on Radio 1 in 1982-1983 - I used to keep finding C90s with his voice on, introducing the Human League, Duran Duran, Dexy's Midnight Runners and others.

    Did anyone like Brian Matthews? He had a good voice and was very smooth, though not as knowledgeable as John Peel. You knew it was him when you heard him. His voice turns up on a lot of 'Live at the BBC' LPs and CDs.

    I have a couple of annual style books from the late '60s and early '70s with features on radio DJs, a lot of the pirate stations employed Canadians for some reason, and there was a Radio Caroline alumni living in my home town over here, the local tv station was all over him when that Ship That Rocked film was out.

    Brian Matthew (no S at the end) was a great broadcaster as well - he was one of the original line up (as Genome tells us) on Radio 2. He was very much like Bob Harris as well, although I would put both of them in the same ballpark as John Peel.

    Oops. I'll have to keep that straight in future... file next to Cliff Richard (no S).
