PAUL ‘Goffy’ Gough, the BBC Radio Tees presenter, is marking his landmark year in the industry with a number of high profile events in the coming months.

The shows are going ahead after 25-year anniversary celebrations were postponed last year following the sudden death of his mentor John Myers, better known as John Morgan during his years as Century Radio.

A special Easter show will feature Harry Cambridge, who is renowned for his acclaimed theatre portrayal of the soul legend Luther Vandross and his music.

Goffy, who hosts the Goffy at weekend lunchtime shows on BBC Radio Tees, explained: “Last year marked 25 years for me on the radio here in the North-East and I wanted to enjoy the anniversary with some special shows around the area.

“It also tied in with the fact that Century Radio was launched on September 1 in 1994.

“I had all of the proposed dates in place – but then in the summer we were all devastated with the death of our boss at the station John Myers.

“I just felt it right to postpone the anniversary celebrations as we were all still in shock. He was the man that taught me so much and I will be forever grateful to him.

“John had his own plans to remember the 25th anniversary of the station and it just felt right to scrap everything at that very sad time.’’

A series of events are lined up, which are now ready to go ahead this year and Mr Gough added: “I am thrilled that Harry Cambridge will kick off the celebrations.

“His Luther Vandross tribute show is taking the theatres all around the UK by storm – they can’t get enough of him! Harry has won awards and appeared all across the globe headlining with his tribute to one of my very favourite singers.

“A quick glance via social media will show how Harry’s portrayal of Luther is unquestionably the greatest out there right now. To have him launch the series of events is truly brilliant for me. I will be hosting the various events and bringing along many of the songs that have been so popular via my various Goffy radio shows across the North East over those wonderful 25 years.’’

The event is taking place at the start of the Easter holiday period, on Thursday April 9 at The Hub, Teesside University, Southfield Road, in Middlesbrough.

Harry will perform all of the famous Luther tunes including ‘Never too much’, ‘Stop to love’ Álways and forever’ ‘Dance with my father’ ‘So amazing’ and many more
