Merseyside radio station to hold Doddy Day
Radio Clatterbridge is holding a special day of tribute to Ken Dodd, one of the station’s patrons.
Hospital radio listeners will hear comedy, music and memories of the comedian who passed away recently.
Paul Johnston, Programme Controller at the Merseyside-based hospital community station, said: “Sir Ken Dodd had a long history of supporting our station. So, in tribute, as family, friends and fans gather to remember him at his funeral, we will be celebrating his life with a day of happiness in his honour.”
Station bosses hope the day will serve as a fitting tribute to the Squire of Knotty Ash.
Steve Evans, Chairman of the charity, added: “Doddy had been performing for as long as Radio Clatterbridge has been cheering up patients and staff here in Clatterbridge. He became our patron in 2004 so it seemed fitting that we should pay tribute to him with music and laughter – both great remedies.”
As the world says tatty-bye to Sir Ken, listeners will also be able to hear memories of the 90-year-old from some of his closest friends and fans.
Radio Clatterbridge will broadcast Doddy Day on Wednesday 28th March featuring the comedy and music of the respected comedian on 1386AM and online.
