    What a tragic loss, I have listened to radio all my life since the age of 12, when I was given a transistor, and one of the first things I heard was the shooting of President Kennedy. I listened to all Grants radio stations when I could probably not 6PR though but he was a champion, never to be replaced, Dave Sutherland did a great job, but not the bloke on now on 2SM.
