Janice Long passes Christmas Day
Janice was a wonderful warm human being and exceptional broadcaster. She told a brilliant story and always made you roar with laughter with her sharp wit. She will leave behind her husband Paul and two children who she thought the world of. Janice loved the BBC and started her career as a station assistant at BBC Radio Merseyside in 1979 to complete it with the magnificent people at BBC Radio Wales. In between she presented for Radio 2, 6 Music and Greatest Hits Radio to name just a few. Janice was the first woman to host Top Of The Pops and to have a daily show on Radio 1. She was passionate always about her music and championed new artists throughout her life including The Smiths, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Primal Scream, Richard Hawley, and was the DJ who gave Amy Winehouse her first radio session. Janice wanted it known she was so thankful to the NHS and all who looked after her there.
Janice was a great friend and I can’t say enough what a privilege it was to work for her. RIP Janice.
