The guy was a genius at what he did.  Whilst I'm not, and never have been, much of a radio listener, on the odd occasion I did hear him (or see him on the telly) it was obvious just how gifted he was.  And, the Jimmy Savile Squad were never interested in him.

I've been a radio listener [especially short-wave] since I was aboot 13 yrs aad...on a pre-war monster set wat a got  from a neighbour and fixed up...

Them were thi days of Barry Alldis,James Whale's night-owls,[lang afore Alan Robson wrecked it!],Radio Luxembourg.....fading...........!

Lang afore phone-ins cos nae bugga had phones ti phone in!!![whey,not in thi mining communities....except the pit Engineer etc!]

So when Terry came alang,he was a favourite from day one,like Tony Blackburn and he's jokes!!

Thi thing that aalwis amused me,reet till we heard of he's passing,and mind,this WAS reet before,aa aalwis used ti comment ti wor lass hoo he just mutters away as he turns he's head away from thi mike ivry noo and again......aa really found that funny.

But a nicer personality will be hard ti match..and fair enough,there are a lot of lovely folks on thi radio,but a think most of them wud agree wi aal us.

R.I.P. Terry Wogan

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
