Brian Matthew, English TV and radio presenter, Died at 88


Brian Matthew was born on September 17, 1928 and died on April 8, 2017.

He was an English broadcaster.

He has been with the BBC for 63 years from 1954 until 2017.

Matthew was the host of Saturday Club among other programmes, and began presenting Sounds of the 60s in 1990, often employing the same vocabulary and the same measured delivery he had used in previous decades.

During January 2017, following a short break from the programme due to a minor illness, the BBC announced, against Matthew’s wishes, that he would not be returning to the programme and that he would be replaced.

Matthew was succeeded by Tony Blackburn.

Brian Matthew passed away at 88 years old.
