Rickshaw - 'Sentimental Journey'
11:00 & 23:00 Hrs Saturday, Sunday, Monday GMT

Rickshaw It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Ray Kilcoyne, better known on the station as Rickshaw. Ray had many listeners to his shows. He first joined us as a Presenter on our 1950s station, on which his shows were very popular. Unfortunately this station couldn't attract the number of listeners to make it viable. We were sorry to lose Ray's shows on the 1950s and when it was closed down he was asked him to come over to the 1940s station, which he happy accepted. He made the transition seamlessly and produced shows to great effect. As a mark of respect, and after consultation with his family, we will be continuing with Ray's show. He acquired a large back catalogue of shows which will enable us to continue with his show. Ray would have loved to know his voice will continue to entertain long after he has passed. Rest in Peace Ray

After 30 years in the radio business in the Northeast, U.S., specifically in Pennsylvania, Vermont and New York, Ray reluctantly decided to "Hang Up his Rock and Roll Shoes" and retire. The 40's are only one of his favorite musical decades, along with the 30s, 50, 60s, and 70s. He was doing the 1940's Countdown Show for two main reasons. First, you can't imagine how much fun it was digging out these oldies for each show, and second, He had noticed that it is the favorite decade for most of the listeners who tune in to 1940s UK Radio. Each show focuses on one week in history, and he tried to make it sound like you might remember radio back at that particular time. He was always pleased to hear from anyone with any comments or suggestions.
