Great shame if true. An excellent dj, his sets played a big part in me getting into techno.

Very sad. Used to listen to his Tuesday night show religiously before I got my turntables, still got one of my recordings

RIP Colin.

RIP Colin, one of the few DJs who were still going from the late 70s.

Truly gutted.

Frankie Knuckles was the U.S. Legend,
But Colin was the UK legend.

Taping his show off the radio every week.

Hardcore had no other legit outlet.

RIP

Gutted.

He was an absolute top fella!

I wrote the theme music for his radio show and some of his jingles, he used them for years.

'Legend' gets used far too often, but he qualifies!

Nice tribute by Colin Dale on his Facebook. I've seen so many posts about him, I guess everyone of a certain age used to lock into his shows back in the days.
