Croydon Radio have broadcast a show to honour the memory of the hospital DJ who fell to his death walking in Snowdonia last month. David March, 36, was a studio manager for the BBC World Service and volunteered as the star of Croydon University Hospital's Radio Mayday station. While hiking in northern Wales, the Thornton Heath man fell 100m from a ridge called Devil's Kitchen on October 12. Steve Cleall, who worked with him on Mayday, said he was a "legend among patients". "He broadcast his own shows several times a week and would always go around the wards after collecting requests from patients for other volunteers to play," he said. "There's a big hole now he's gone and we're all very shocked. He set the radio up for a brilliant future but they are some very big shoes to fill." Now Croydon Radio have broadcast an hour long show in memory of Mr March and have uploaded a podcast to their website for anyone to listen. In the first half, fellow radio presenters, staff members and the hospital's chaplain talk about their memories of Mr March. In the second, a folk show originally broadcast by Mr March is played.
