Brian Matthew

Brian Matthew (born 17 September 1928) is an English broadcaster, who has broadcast for the BBC since 1954. He began presenting Sounds of the 60s in 1990, often employing the same vocabulary and the same measured delivery he used in previous decades. In January 2017, after a short break from the programme due to a minor illness, the BBC announced, against Matthew's wishes, that he would not be returning to the programme and they would be replacing him on Sounds of the 60s. He is to be succeeded by Tony Blackburn.
