Alan Hardy, long standing SD member, sad news.

It is with deep sadness I must report some news to you that Alan passed away on the 20th March 2020.

I met Alan through good friends of mine from my 'hospital radio' and broadcast television days at Sky TV, London in the 1990's. This was a total shock to us here in the UK. He was such a knowledgable individual and good fun to be around. We only met up occasionally, but it was the same gang talking about pirate radio in the UK, radio & radio jingles, television, soul, Motown and northern soul. It was a time warp away from politics and change which we always enjoyed. Here is a lovely three page tribute to him on the 'Radio London' website by his good friend Mary Payne. The 'next page' link is right at the bottom:


It will never be the same without you Alan, rest in peace.

The Jackson Five Live in Paris, 1972

Sorry for the blurred watermark/poor video and sound quality, but I found this to be an incredible time capsule of the brothers, particularly MJ (whose voice was just beginning to change here). Enjoy!
