Paul Waters

Paul Waters has died.

Starting his career with ATV, then moving on to BBC telefilm and then BBC radio, “Paulie” did mostly behind-the-scenes jobs until the invention of “Wake Up to Wogan”, where he gradually moved closer to front-of-house, not just choosing Sir Terry’s music but also often to be heard as part of the complex and in-joke-ridden stream-of-consciousness that gets the majority of radio listeners out of bed on weekday mornings.

And it’s for being a part of the fabric of British life as a TOG for which he will be most missed.

See you ’round, Paulie.
