The veteran BBC radio presenter Dave Cash has died at the age of 74.

The former Radio One DJ from Hollingbourne, near Maidstone, recently celebrated 50 years of broadcasting.

He worked at Radio London and Radio Luxembourg before becoming one of the first DJs on BBC Radio 1 – alongside Tony Blackburn and John Peel.

For the last 17 years he presented vintage chart and country music programmes on BBC Radio Kent and other BBC radio stations in the South.

Paying tribute, Tony Blackburn said: “He was a very, very nice guy. His shows were very entertaining and as a person he was very warm, very good company to be with. I enjoyed his company immensely.”

Another former BBC Radio 1 DJ, David Hamilton, said: “I always found him very easygoing company. We’d enjoy a drink and a laugh together.

“When we got together there was loads of laughter. I just remember him as great fun.”
