Tribute to Richard Wheatly at Jazz FM Awards

Simon Cooke, former Director of Jazz FM Records, held a tribute speech to the late Richard Wheatly at the recent Jazz FM Awards event in London.

The station broadcast live from the event, and Simon, now Managing Director of Ronnie Scott’s, raised a toast to Richard and played a tribute video (available below).

Jazz FM’s Content Director Nick Pitts told RadioToday: “The 2015 Jazz FM Awards was our first opportunity to celebrate Richard Wheatly’s legacy. It was a brilliant evening – 400 guests, dozens of nominees, 11 winners and loads of champagne – Richard would have been proud.”

The former Jazz FM CEO and executive chairman of The Local Radio Company died in April following a short illness, aged just 69.
