Andrew Turner passed away

His son, Jamie Freeman Turner, wrote on the Facebook Atantic 252 group on 8th March:

With immense sadness, I have to inform that Andrew Turner passed away yesterday.
His fantastic storytelling on and off air, and his booming voice will be so so missed.
His last show was with Tony Blackburn on Capital Gold breakfast show, and since then he continued to be a greatly supportive father and gave his weekly prompt phone calls, only like a professional newsreader would.
I loved hearing stories of his time at Atlantic 252. If you have any stories you’d like to share, please do. Thank you.
Offshore radio fans will of course fundly remember Andrew Turner from his time as newsreader and occasional deejay on Laser Hot Hits 576 from the radioship MV Communicator.
