Thank you for being my friend
"This is it, then, this is the day I have been dreading, the morning when you and I come to the parting of the ways... It's always been a source of enormous pride to me that you have come together in my name, that you are proud to call yourself my listeners, that you think of me as a friend, someone that you are close enough to laugh with, to poke fun at and – just occasionally, when the world seemed just a little too cruel – to shed a tear with.
I am not going to pretend that this is not a sad day. I am going to miss the laughter and the fun of our mornings together. We make no apology for the music being a little slow and sentimental this morning. There's a reason for it. I am going to miss you, until we are together again... Thank you, thank you for being my friend."
such sad news about Terry Wogan. I grew up listening to him in the mornings on the way to school and over breakfast, and as I got older, I’d listen to him on the way to work or wherever I was going that I probably didn’t want to go. It was always like listening to an old friend talking to me and his last Wake Up To Wogan was one of the most beautiful bits of radio ever. He was the first DJ to ever play The Boy Least Likely To on the radio too, and hearing him playing our songs on the radio always meant the world to us.
Sad, sad news.
Rest in peace Terry Wogan.
