Guy Starkey - Advocate of Radio Literacies

I’ve just seen on Twitter that Guy Starkey, professor of radio and the author of a number of books about the continuing relevance of radio, has died. Guy had been unwell for some time. He will be missed by his many friends and colleagues. AE2358CC-52A8-496E-BF8C-94867330C558

How very sad. I met Guy at the European Radio Show in Paris when he was good enough to attend a talk I gave. We kept in touch and was a great sounding board for ideas on community radio sector development. He was consummate in gentle, quality, intelligent and knowledgeable conversation. My thoughts are with his widow and family.
