Yorkshire radio presenter Stewart Coxhead dies

Stewart Coxhead, one of the first presenters on Pennine Radio, has died after a long illness.

Stewart’s main career was in music as a record executive. He started out with the major European label Phonogram Records, then then went on to launch his own independent record promotion company called Bullet.

He was one of the first to work in commercial radio in the UK, with programmes on Pennine 235 from Bradford in the 70s and 80s.

Former colleague from Pennine, Peter Milburn, wrote a tribute on Facebook: “I’m very sad to hear of the death of Stewart Coxhead, one of the great personalities of the music and radio industries. He did some shows for us in the earlier days of Pennine Radio in Bradford which stood out for their originality, breadth of musical knowledge and, above all, a dry and unique sense of humour.”

Stewart then went into band management, steering the careers of the English/American Contemporary Jazz group, Acoustic Alchemy, for more than 25 years.

Here he is on video discussing the band:
