Steve Wright

“The news of Steve Wright’s death has shattered me. We knew each other since the early sixties. Little Steve’s mum, Joan, was my mum Joyce’s good friend in New Cross Gate, London, SE14, in the fifties and sixties. Steve was in my brother Nigel’s class at Edmund Waller Primary School. Joan had a job, and so Steve would walk home after school with Nigel and Joyce and have tea at our flat in Fairlawn Mansions. Many of you have heard about this; it came up several times during chats he and I had on BBC Radio 2.

Steve Wright was the consummate broadcast professional. There wasn’t a star on this earth who refused the chance to share an interview with him on his In The Afternoon show.

Steve managed to be both the guy down-the-street, and a pro working on a higher plane at one and the same time.

He made it all seem so easy.

My loving best wishes and deepest sympathy go to his family.”

CHRISTMAS 2023

  • Read: 4312 Times

Greetings friends and fans around the world.

I send love and good thoughts to you all, and your families, and wish you a peaceful, wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.

2023 has not exactly been an annus horibilis for me, as the first half was often magical, with some great nights on stage with Barry, Oli and David. And the full rock band in Holland and Belgium, and Denmark….out there, on the road, that’s where I come alive.

The second half, well…cancelling Live dates is heartbreaking. I’m aware of the stress and financial strain it can place On you.

But I’m fighting a nasty cancer. My oncologist is pleased with the treatment’s effects so far. It’s tiresome, and tiring. But the fight is on. And thankfully the cursed intruder is not affecting the voice. I sing and play most evenings.

Our house will be filled with the wonderful company of children and grandchildren over the holidays, and I hope yours will be too. How else will you pull a cracker?

Thank you for your support, and for all the touching messages in your cards. It means more than I can tell.

Steve
