BBC Radio 2 broadcaster Brian Matthew has died, his family has said.
Matthew had presented Sounds of the 60s since April 1990. His last full show was broadcast in November 2016, but he returned in February for a final compilation programme.
He also presented on TV, fronting ITV show Thank Your Lucky Stars which featured bands including The Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Matthew died on Saturday at the age of 88.
Obituary: Brian Matthew
Matthew was born in Coventry to a singer mother and conductor father. He began broadcasting at the British Forces Network and later worked at Radio Netherlands Worldwide.
He worked for the BBC from 1954 and was the voice of the explosion of pop music.
It was revealed earlier this week that Matthew was critically ill, after Radio 2 initially mistakenly announced his death.
His passing on Saturday morning was confirmed by Radio 2 and by Matthew's god-daughter.
