Fluff's voice was part of a generation's (maybe two generations') teenage years. I seem to have his voice crackling out of the portable tranny in the background of so many good memories. He had style, did Fluff.

ZZ Top. Bamboo Bar in Bangkok. Like me they're Leg Men - they got style...

RIP, Fluff.

You were part of my formative years, for which I thank you.

I don't think there is any radio presenter/DJ in the UK, or learned his trade there, that does not owe a great deal to Fluff. Everyone of us learnt something from him.

A great and knowledgable broadcaster and a nice guy as well.

He is a sad loss.

RIP Alan.

Long may "At the Sign of the Swinging Cymbal" be heard.

One of those people who I haven't thought about for years, and yet provided so much entertainment.

Sad news indeed. Peel and now Fluff. My teenage years (77-83) are now indeed just memories, and it's amazing just how many of these memories revolve around their distinctive presentation styles, along with chosen music, emanating from a radio.

One of my treasured possessions is a signed photo of Fluff circa 1980-ish, when I was still in shorts at primary school.

A true one-off and an original.
