BBC's James Alexander Gordon dies
« on: August 18, 2014, 21:41 »
James Alexander Gordon, one of the most recognisable voices in British broadcasting, has died aged 78.

Gordon read the classified football results on BBC radio for 40 years before stepping down in 2013.

He retired following throat surgery after he was diagnosed with cancer.

Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker tweeted: "A voice we all know, the voice of the football results, James Alexander Gordon has died. Tottenham Hotspur 1.. Newcastle United 1.. #RIP"

I saw him on the news bulletin last night and I probably have heard him.  I remember years ago when they used to broadcast the football results on the radio.  Accrington Stanley nil, Sc***horpe 1.   8-)
