Legendary Rock DJ Tommy Vance Dies

Legendary rock DJ Tommy Vance has died of a stroke at the age of 63. A veteran of the offshore British pirate radio stations Radio Caroline and Radio London, Vance was part of a select few like Kenny Everett and John Peel who were popular because they knew what they were talking about and had great taste in rock and roll, something that is increasingly rare in today’s commercial radio "market." You can listen to some samples of Vance’s work at the Offshore Radio DJ Hall of Fame.
