Tommy Vance was born Richard Anthony Crispian Francis Prew Hope-Weston in Oxfordshire on 11 July 1940. His helming of the Friday Rock Show on BBC Radio One in the UK provided virtually the only outlet for rock and metal in the early 1980s, and his deep, rich voice became one of the most recognisable on British radio. He died of a stroke in March 2005.
