RIP Mr William Randle

RIP - Old friend
Sadly we lost  a PCRL contributor Mr William Randle on the 4th, April, 2020. Bill started on the Station in the early 1990's as a guest on Mickey Nold's breakfast show.

It was soon apparent that Bill and his wife Dawn were live soul music fanatics, supporting Motown shows all around the UK and soon became personal friends with the late Edwin Starr who introduced them to many Motown related producers and performers when visiting the UK and on Bill & Dawn's holidays in the USA. I saw this as a great opportunity to have Bill interview them for my radio shows.

Over time we made over 30 artiste/producer specials together for PCRL He would take a reel to reel recorder a few microphones with him on his USA holiday and bring back priceless recordings with him.

These shows have been uploaded to the 'Bill Randle interviews page' on this site. After the Station closed down Bill moved his DJ'ing skills to Bridge FM in Stourbridge, later joined hands with Black Country Radio, here he did a Sunday night easy listening soul show that was syndicated on many other stations all over the World. He did the show their for around  7 years. Bill died from motor neuron disease that sadly effected his talking towards the end. We all will all miss he greatly - Mickey Nold
