A number of legendary musicians have sadly passed away in recent weeks from COVID-19 complications.

Dave Greenfield, keyboard player with The Stranglers, died on Sunday aged 71. He contracted the virus after a prolonged stay in hospital, where he was being treated for heart problems.

Greenfield wrote the band's biggest hit, 'Golden Brown', and was known for his distinctive sound on the keyboard and other instruments including the harpsichord and Hammond electric organ.

John Caddell and Dee Reddy joined us for our weekly music slot to pay tribute to Greenfield and talk about the new albums that have been delayed by the pandemic.
