Veteran Radio 2 DJ Desmond Carrington dies at the age of 90 –

Head of Radio 2 Lewis Carnie said: “Desmond’s weekly Friday evening programme, The Music Goes Round, was full of musical gems and treasures, and he will be very much missed by his listeners.”

Carrington’s first stint on the radio was in 1946 as a member of the BBC Drama Repertory Company, and it was around this time he also began working as an independent producer making programmes for Radio Luxembourg and the BBC.

As well as being a radio host, Carrington appeared in stage shows, TV plays and in several short films, including a short entitled Calamity The Cow alongside a then-teenage Phil Collins before he joined Genesis.
