This message arrived at AIR FM from Vince's Wife on the 7th of May, 1999:
I have the sad task to inform all that Vince Kelly ("Kelly's Korner 2VTR 6PM Sunday + So Rare AIR-FM 2PM Wednesday) passed away at 4PM yesterday (Thursday) at Nepean District Hospital.
Vince suffered complications earlier this week, following lung surgery at the hospital.
Vince started his involvement in community radio around 1990, and continued to present his weekly collection of audio musical memories over the years. More recently, he also presented for AIR-FM 100.7.
He was a regular at all garage sales where 78 records were on offer. Prior to his retirement, Vince worked for many years for Australia's international carrier, Qantas.
With a keen sense of humour and a passion for his nostalgic music programs, Vince will be sadly missed by us all.
Vale Vince Kelly.
