    A true radio legend. Sure to be missed by all.

    Deepest sympathy to his family...

    Just goes to show you never know how much time you have got.

    Sad News

    I couldn't believe it when I heard it on the radio today. :(

    I met him about 5 years ago at a record stall in Newport indoor market, one of his regular places for picking up obscure records apparantly. A real one off who'll be missed.

    Cant imagine late night radio without JP :(

    I dont remember ANY other personality's death having such a profound effect on me
    I too was listening ot the likes of the Souxsie/Selecter/Jam/999/Fall/Undertones and particularly Elvis Costello - and its just amazing that he had the same sense of enthusiasm for Indie as he did for punk. He was a 65 yr old man into D&B FFS
    I dont remember ANY other personality's death having such a profound effect on me

    Jarvis Cocker summed it up for me tonight on the tribute board

    and another very moving thought



    Rest in peace John
