All of us at Brooklands Radio were saddened by the death on 19th October 2012 of Lance England,
our Technical Director and a talented presenter.
At 19 Lance joined the BBC as an Assistant Film Recordist, working on programmes including Bergerac, Nationwide
and Panorama and becoming a Senior Audio Supervisor. He left after 10 years to set up a post-production
sound-recording business, Gemini Audio, mixing TV soundtracks for the BBC, ITV, and most major broadcasters
and working on programmes that included Ground Force, Horizon, Equinox, Dispatches, The South Bank Show and
children's cartoon series Chuggington, and with many leading actors including Sir John Gielgud and Robert Powell.
All at Brooklands Radio were very saddened to learn that Ray Rainbow passed away in hospital on
2nd December 2011 after a prolonged illness. Ray loved doing radio and was a brilliant broadcaster.
He was with us from the start of BrooklandsFM with our annual 4-week stints on FM and put much
preparation into his very entertaining and fun shows, first in an evening slot and later developing
through our ongoing internet service a very successful Sunday Brunch show full of fun, amusing stories,
competitions, guests and great music and jingles which proved ideal entertainment for a Sunday morning.
