The radio industry has been paying tribute to DJ Dave Cash who has died, aged 74. Cash enjoyed a long career in radio, and was one of the first DJs on BBC Radio 1 alongside the likes of Tony Blackburn and John Peel.

He also spent more than two decades at Capital Radio, another station he joined at the outset. There he rejoined radio legend Kenny Everett on air, the duo having co-presented shows on pirate radio earlier in their careers. In 1999, he joined BBC Radio Kent, where he continued to broadcast until his death, with recent shows also airing on other local BBC stations in the south of England.

Among those paying tribute this weekend were Blackburn, who told the BBC: “He was a very, very nice guy. His shows were very entertaining and as a person he was very warm, very good company to be with. I enjoyed his company immensely”.
