Vale Dick Hughes


VALE RICHARD (DICK) HUGHES, founding member 2RRR Ryde Regional Radio

We are sad to announce that Dick Hughes, late of Macquarie Park, recently passed away. Dick was an avid Jazz lover and very well connected within 2RRR and the Jazz scene. There are many stories about Dick’s love of music and generosity. Colin Briscoe (Feel Good Revival) related that Dick was a true supporter of the blues, presenting Blues Before Sunrise, a long-running program for many years on 2RRR, together with his jazz programs. Colin remembered the support Dick gave him when Colin first started at 2RRR, gifting music and textbooks on the blues legends.

Dick Hughes’ name is on the 2RRR honour board, in the office, in recognition of his significant contribution, and commitment, to 2RRR.

Family and friends of Richard are warmly invited to attend his Funeral Service to be held 10 am Friday 17th August at Magnolia Chapel, Macquarie Park Crematorium, Plessey Road, North Ryde.
