There's a huge Group being put together in Heaven, Bowie, Glenn Frey, Paul Kantner and so many others, and I guess it needed a compere.

One of the best quotes I heard today about Sir Terry was when somebody had asked him how many listeners he had he said "just one" , very true - he had the gift of making you feel he was talking to you not you and 8 million others.
He would be on my list in the "If you could invite anybody to a dinner party" game.

Another sad day, hope they reshow some of his chat shows. His interviews with some "real stars" were wonderful.
