Subject: Veteran broadcaster Sir Jimmy Young dies aged 95

Written By: Philip Eno on 11/07/16 at 8:49 pm

The long-serving DJ, who spent almost three decades at BBC Radio 2, died "peacefully at home" on Monday afternoon with his wife Alicia by his side, a family spokesman said.
Sir Jimmy was one of the original Radio 1 DJs when the station launched in 1967.
He moved to Radio 2 in 1973 and filled the early afternoon slot until he retired in December 2002.
Before becoming a presenter on the airwaves, Sir Jimmy had a number of hit singles during the 1950s, including covers of Too Young, and Unchained Melody.
