Kerrang! Radio suffered a tragic loss as Unsigned Show presenter Robert Dentith sadly passed away at the age of 29 last Thursday (5th October).
"He has worked tirelessly for years on bringing new music to the fore, helping bands where help did not previously exist and to use his favourite quote: ‘provided a voice for the underground".
"From a personal point of view I have lost a great and very close friend and one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting," says Unsigned Show Presenter, Loz. "I had known and worked very closely with Rob for nearly 3 years and watched with great admiration as he poured his heart and his soul into promoting new and unsigned music in the West Midlands.
"Those of you that knew Rob will understand how radio and unsigned music were his passion and his life. He has worked tirelessly for years on bringing new music to the fore, helping bands where help did not previously exist and to use his favourite quote: ‘provided a voice for the underground’.
"His voice is no longer here but it will live on as the scene continues to flourish as we build upon what he started. My one abiding memory of Rob will always be his enthusiasm for life; his outlook was always positive even in the face of great adversity. He was a man whose cup was never half full but truly overflowing and he will be missed by us all."
