Who can forget Russ Kane and his little blue plane waking up London? ‘Russ-Boy’ as Chris Tarrant affectionately called him, was the morning voice of Capital FM’s ‘Flying Eye’ traffic-spotter plane for 20 years, as part of the behemoth Chris Tarrant Breakfast show.  It was the most listened-to commercial radio show in the world, with an audience in excess of 4 million.

However, life was not without tragedy for the on-air joker – whose wife died from cancer when their twins were just 5-years-old – making him rethink his life.

Russ has kept his hand in on air – joining BBC Radio London where his weekly, news reviews have earned a loyal following and on TalkRadio, where his Midweek Music Review is a much-anticipated highlight of Paul Ross’ Breakfast Show.
