Radiobit: Paul Walters

The death has been announced of Paul Walters, producer of the Terry Wogan breakfast show on Radio 2.

Walters joined Radio 2 in 1977 after a spell with the BBC film department, first linking up with Wogan in 1980. When Terry returned to breakfasts on the network, Walters was the obvious choice to oversee the programme; even after his illness took him away from day-to-day duties in November last year, he continued to be involved with choosing the tracks to sit in between Wogan's talking.

Walters, who also produced You, The Night and The Music, John Dunn and Ed Stewart during his time with the station, was 59.

I was sorry to hear that Pauly had passed on. I had wondered what had happened to him over the past year. He will be sadly missed.

Rock on in peace Dr Wally

His cause of death has obviously been kept quiet, as it is no-ones business?!

Pauly died of cancer. I hear that he bore it with stoicism, but was very weak and in some pain at the end. I'll miss him.
