Former Radio City country music presenter Joe Butler has died. Joe was a stalwart of the country music scene in the UK, and a long-time member of the band 'The Hillsiders'. He joined Radio City in 1975 and most recently hosted programmes on SAGA Radio in the East Midlands.

Joe was popular in the country music world and a true character of the British country scene. His band, The Hillsiders signed to RCA Records in the 1970s and appeared at the Wembley Festival on many occasions.

Former Radio City boss Dave Lincoln knows Joe will be missed: "Radio in Liverpool during the 70s wouldn't have been the same without Joe Butler on the radio. Not only did he host the country music show, but also an amazingly popular Sunday lunchtime request show. He'll be sadly missed."

Joe was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer around a year ago.
