Simon Mayo honoured by Academy

Simon Mayo, Jimmy Saville and LBC's Anna Raeburn were among 16 names added to the Radio Academy's Hall of Fame at the organisation's Patrons' Lunch, which took place in London yesterday afternoon.

Radio 2's Sounds of the Sixties host Brian Matthew was also honoured, along with the late comedienne Linda Smith and legendary BBC sports presenter Eamonn Andrews.

Also admitted to the Hall of Fame this week were Hattie Jacques, Jimmy Clitheroe, Al Read, Barry Alldis, Betty Marsden, John Timpson, Peter Brough and Archie Andrews, Peter Jones, Tony Windsor and Pete Murray.

Jimmy had to wear something special to the event, as he ignored the dress code and turned up in a bright green and silver shell suit. "I haven't worn this suit for 22 years," he said. "You need something special for a day like today."
