R.I.P. Malcolm Laycock

More sad news on the jazz front. Former BBC Radio presenter Malcolm Laycock has passed away. The big band DJ died on Nov. 8 age 70. I listened regularly to his Sunday night shows which concentrated on the best of British and American big bands. Malcolm Laycock left in July this year replaced by Clare Teal there was some acrimony surrounding his departure and, according to various media reports, reflected badly on the BBC. Obituary. Lance. Families anger at BBC.

How very sad, he was one of the last Sunday presenters from the "old school" I think David Jacobs is about the only one left. At one time we had a feast of such people. Benny Green & Alan Dell being my particular faves. They made Sunday afternoon listening a real pleasure.
