WELL known expat radio presenter Roy Silverthorne has died today in England, aged 67, following a long illness.
Roy was a popular face throughout the expat marketplace, having presented breakfast shows for Spectrum Radio, REM and then TRE.
Arriving in Spain in 2002 from Bahrain in the Arabian Gulf, Roy also at one time launched a radio station – Choice FM – in Almeria, but it didn’t prove as successful as he had hoped.
He left Spain just under four years ago, by which time he was suffering ill health, and died in Doncaster.
He is survived by his wife Gill and their daughter Lisa.
