We were shocked to hear the news this morning.  No idea he was ill at all.

He's the British equivalent to Howard Cosell. This would be a very big deal in England.

I once attended a recording for the radio show "Quote, Unquote" back in 1977. The guests on the show were Anna Ford, Malcolm Muggeridge, Spike Milligan, and Terry Wogan. I just remember the recording being hysterical.

If it involved Spike Milligan ... it would have been manic!  One of the funniest men to ever walk this planet!

Books of condolence have opened for Sir Terry Wogan, as his breakfast show successor Chris Evans paid tribute on air to "radio's Eric Morecambe".

Sir Terry Wogan's life will be celebrated in a special event at Westminster Abbey, the BBC has announced.

The service will take place on 27 September.

The broadcaster died of cancer on 31 January aged 77.

Sir Terry had a 50-year career on radio and television, including Wake up to Wogan on BBC Radio 2 and the Wogan chat show on BBC One.

He was also the voice of the Eurovision Song Contest in the UK for many years and had been involved in the Children in Need appeal since it began in 1980.
