He continued: “Joe had worked for Global, the parent company, for nine years.

“He was the very first person I met when I walked through the door. I remember thinking he was a bit of a Del Boy.

“He was with me right from my very first show. He taught me everything I didn’t know about sitting in a radio studio without him.”
