60's/70's D.J  Keith Richardson passed away in the Wanganui Hospital on Saturday 19th February 2011, aged 72.  Keith ran the N.Z Top Twenty for a number of years and did many voiceovers for commercials in the 70's.  To quote the bereavement notice 'Old D.J's never die, they just lose their groove'.  I'm sure many many N.Z. muso's have had their music aired at some stage in their career by Keith on whatever radio station he was working at. - Jim Pilcher

Keith really was a good broadcaster and I remember him well.  When I was a youngster in Hawkes Bay, Keith served time as an announcer at 2ZC our local station - George Burrell
From all the guys (only three left of the Avengers) we send our condolence's to the family and friends and our thanks for all he did for us and I'm sure there are many Bands with the same sentiment - Dave Brown, Clive Cockburn, and Hank Davis
