BBC Radio Kent presenter Dave Cash has died at the age of 74.
We’re told Dave collapsed this morning and passed away at lunch time.
Dave has worked in the UK radio industry for as long as it has existed, and has been with Radio Luxembourg, Radio London, BBC Radio 1, Capital Radio, Country 1035 and Primetime Radio. He was also launch Programme Controller at Radio West.
He’s well known for his pairing with Kenny Everett, hosting the Kenny & Cash Show on the radio for many years, originally in 1965, plus his Cash on Delivery programme.
BBC Radio Kent announced the news at 3pm today and aired at special two-hour documentary about his life and career, produced by the station in 2014 to mark his 50th year in broadcasting.
His last radio show for BBC local radio in the South was just this week – on October 15th – where he paid tribute to Bob Dylan and remembered his days hosting with Kenny.
