Such sad news, I always hoped Pauly would return one day. Condolences to all who loved him.


Paul Walters, long-time producer of Sir Terry Wogan's Radio 2 breakfast show, has died in hospital aged 59 following a long illness.
Walters, known to millions as Dr Wally, joined the BBC's film department in 1974, moving to Radio 2 in 1977.

He is credited with introducing artists such as Katie Melua and Eva Cassidy to the British public.
"To know Paul Walters was to love him. His character was in his smile," said Sir Terry.
"He was charming and he was relaxed, almost to the point of sleep sometimes. He was the self-styled 'best putter in the world' and he was also the best music programmer in the world. Millions of listeners will mourn the loss of a friend. Me too," he added.



Lesley Douglas, Controller for BBC Radio 2, said: "Paul Walters was a uniquely talented producer. He loved radio, music and Wake Up To Wogan.
"In return he was loved by every individual who knew him in Radio 2, and by millions of listeners to the station. His relationship with Terry Wogan produced magical radio which will be remembered with affection for years to come," she added.

Walters, who first worked with Wogan in 1980, produced the award-winning Wake Up To Wogan show until his illness was diagnosed in November 2005. He continued to be involved with choosing the music for the programme during his illness.


Walters, who grew up in Hertfordshire, leaves a brother and sister.

You can read some tributes left by listeners here and also leave your own tribute if you wish.

I had to stop reading, it made me cry, soppy old bugger!

For Pauly

I believe it's online at the BBC on Terry's web page, too, Veronica - but only until it gets repaced by next Monday's.

I would also like a copy of this show. I was on holiday that week and it was something Terry said this morning that made think that Pauly was no longer with us. I think everyone was wondering whether he would be back with the team, but the news of his death comes as a shock.
 
Can you email me at mike[dot]coe[AT]writtle[dot]ac[dot]uk and I send you my address.
 
Thanks
Mike
