    It was shown over here, originally by short-lived satellite broadcaster BSB, who didn't have that many viewers. It was later shown by satellite channel Sky One after Sky's merger with BSB, who again didn't have many viewers. I can't recall it being shown free-to-air, but it's possible that an ITV region may have picked it up to show locally.
  2. The Next Piper At The Gates Of Heaven

    Jazzwise magazine has recently tweeted that Tom Rapp of Pearls Before Swine has died. Can't find any other confirmation yet.
  3. Dead Drummers

    Mickey Jones, who drummed for Bob Dylan in 1966, has apparently died according to a post on my Facebook feed.
  4. Spy Corner

    He just needs to go outside and get some fresh air.
  5. 50. Mark E Smith

    Dead, according to the fallnews Twitter account. Awaiting confirmation elsewhere.
  6. Presenters

    Paul Jones is leaving the Blues show too.
  7. Captain Beefheart

    Jeff Cotton, aka Antennae Jimmy Semens, guitarist with Captain Beefheart's Magic Band between 1967 and 1970, has apparently died aged 68.
  8. One of my picks may have died yesterday, if a twitter post is to be believed. I've not seen any confirmation yet, and the account that posted the death doesn't seem to be a hoaxer.
  9. 1. Kirk Douglas

    Sorry - it now seems to be yet another hoax.
  10. 1. Kirk Douglas

    I've just seen a post on my Facebook feed indicating that he's died, shared by an LA based journalist acquaintance of mine. Can't vouch for the post's veracity at present.

    Only source so far is a Facebook post from someone claiming to know him, indicating he had cirrhosis of the liver. His last Twitter post from 8 days ago just said "In hospital".
