Terry Wogan - Another legend lost.

We've lost a broadcasting legend today. Sir Terry Wogan was witty, gentle, warm, and irreverent. Not only was he the BBC TV's Eurovision presenter for many, many years, but he was truly one of the country's best radio broadcasters. I remember the first morning I listened to his breakfast show in 1978 and I heard him play ABBA's Voules Vous, I was hooked and I ended up listened most mornings, until he retired.

Whether he was presenting his breakfast radio show, Wake Up With Wogan, Come Dancing, Blankety Blank, Children in Need or The Eurovision Song Contest, he was the consummate professional.
