Alan Esdaile… R.I.P. Terry Wogan and thank you for your wonderful dry comedy.

Jim Hobbs… A very great loss to broadcasting and to us all. What a terrible year 2016 is turning out to be for losing heroes.

Cheryl Pyatt… Very sad news. What a wonderful man. R.I.P. Terry.img404

Colin Bell… Another soundtrack to our lives gone. For his humour, wit and Eurovision ‘commentary’ he’ll be sadly missed. R.I.P. Terry.

Mick O’Dowd… Sad loss. The Grim Reaper is on overtime it seems. Beware!

Dave Nattress… Very sad to learn of this news. As an old rocker who would almost naturally be listening to music programmes on the radio, I was never, ever in two minds about listening to Terry on R2 when I could + actually of course R2 does play some of the older stuff that I grew up with. Marvellously entertaining and truly one of the greatest broadcasters and presenters ever – maybe the very, very best of just a few. Taking the wotsit when it was right to do so but in such a subtle way and never unkind. He got the formula just right. What about the dreaded Euro-derision – Terry made it watchable. One of those DJ’s that you listened to because you wanted to hear them and their comments much more than whatever it was they were playing.

Tony Davies… Very sad,,,,,

Andre Martin… Another sad day – too many departing RIP Sir Terry, you can now plague producer Mr Walters in that great radio station in the sky ! His very dry humour was a way often to get you going in the morning, and some of the so called characters who used to contact him, we all knew were his invention but that did not matter, they were entertaining without trying to hurt anybody.

Caz Simpson… Terry’s voice was like a comforting hug, I could never feel lonely when he was on air. This is one TOG who will miss him enormously, such a very sad day for everyone x

Andy Qunta… He was brilliant!

Tony May… At least Sir Terry spent his life doing what he was brilliant at and entertaining us all with his wit and charm. Sadly, not many people get to live the life they would like… Bon Voyage Sir Terry!
