Thread Name: Obit: Tony Capstick (UK) (October 2003)
Subject: RE: Obit: Tony Capstick (UK)
I had the very great good fortune to meet Tony after years of writing daft spoof letters , faxes and emails, which he always read out with great relish, then three or four years ago my son and I started writing sketches and parodies, burning them to CD, which Cappo would play on his show. When I met him in the Rock (We were summoned) he gave us one of the best evenings I can remember. We became firm friends after that I think he was everything that was great about Radio Sheffield. The man also had a massive intellect and an appetite for reading matched by no one.
All our love goes to Gill and his family.
