Haslemere-based radio presenter Jamie Crick died on Tuesday last week, just a day after his final broadcast at the age of 57.

Mr Crick’s family said he died following a “short illness”, shortly after presenting his final Jazz FM show on Monday, August 28. He signed off with the words: “I will see you in a couple of weeks, I’m just going to go and enjoy the rain.”

The presenter’s career in broadcasting spanned nearly 30 years and he was instrumental in setting up Radio Haslemere. Friends and colleagues have taken to social media to pay tribute to him.

The Herald’s own Daniel Gee recorded a weekly paper review with Mr Crick on BBC Radio Surrey  and posted: “Desperately sad to hear Haslemere man and radio broadcaster Jamie Crick has died at 57. Very fond memories of my weekly paper reviews with Jamie on BBC Surrey back in the day. We had a good chuckle, and he always came across as a very decent chap.”

World-renowned soprano Catherine Bott first joined Classic FM in 2013 with Jamie and described him as “filling the studio with energy and enthusiasm”.
