Kenny's Radio Partner Has Sea Scattering

18/08/2017

The ashes of Dave Cash, the very literal straight man co-host to outrageous gay presenter Kenny Everett, have been scattered from the LV18 lightship off Harwich.  Mr Cash died at seventy four late last year.  The location for the ash scattering ceremony was chosen because it was close the anchorage of the nineteen sixties pop music station Wonderful Radio London, which broadcast from a converted World War 2 minesweeper during the swinging sixties.  It was on Radio London that Cash and Everett formulated the wacky, camp and slightly surreal “Kenny and Cash” programme, which Kenny Everett always claimed was the first time two radio presenters had shared a daily programme.  Although Kenny was not out on the air about his sexuality, the other DJs at Radio London knew he was gay and gave him the affectionate nickname of Doris.  Dave Cash later worked for Radio Luxembourg and for a while was based in Bristol, where he was programme controller on the city’s first legal commercial radio service, Radio West.
