Mark Radcliffe has Cancer But it's Been Caught Early

I can't see a thread about this, sorry if there is one. He's always seemed like a good bloke to me and I hope he'll be okay.

Now – here’s a thing – I’m sad to say that I’ve got some cancerous tongue and lymph node issues and so, as I’m sure you’ll understand, I’m going to be disappearing for a while. It’s all been caught very early and so everything should be fine.

All being well I’ll be back in action in the new year – or sooner if I feel well enough – but I will be back – you can depend on it – I just can’t say exactly when that will be. So You won’t hear from me for a while now and therefore…well…..Merry Christmas I guess. Life eh?

I love the fella and hope he's better soon.

Out On Blue Six blew my mind in 1993.

“Maaaark Raaaadcliffe: He’s dead good at playing records and grrreat!”

Yeah, really crap news. Proper bummed out hearing this the other day. As others have said, he always comes across as an affable, down to earth, kind of chap.  The Graveyard Shift was a massive part of my musically formative years, not to mention being far funnier than most of the “proper” comedy on the radio back then (and now, come to think of it).  Always been well worth a listen since...

Get well soon fella

That's both sad but encouraging - speedy recovery our kid, eh.

Must also be frustrating for Radcliffe to go through this in the last couple of months of his afternoon tenure. I hope he gets all the rest and recovery he needs to come back guns a blazing like Danny Baker did after his brush with that bastard disease.

Ohhhhhh dea-er.

Hopefully he'll get shot of it quick and bounce back.  Not that I've listened to him since splitting with Lard, but he's still a good lad.

Loved his shows with Lard. Still have loads of audio from those days and they still get regularly dug out.
Get well soon!

The Graveyard Shift was something of a rock to cling to during the worst years of my life. Get well soon, Scrawn.

Without wanting to talk like he's already dead, this thread has made me listen to Fat Harry White again, specifically the vicar's wife one, which kills me every single time I listen to it.

In todays namby pamby PC attitude this probably would not be allowed due to cultural appropriation or triggers or what ever PC twats will start screeching about.  I remember listening to this live and it was glorious.

I first heard you on Hit the North with Lard and sometimes Pumpy Boy.
Wonderful wireless.
