DJ Patrick, 91, is a real golden oldie…


MOST men his age are more used to slipping discs than spinning them – but Patrick Murphy, 91, has no intention of quitting his DJ job any time soon. Patrick, from Odsal in Bradford, took the reins of his twice-weekly show at St Luke’s Sound Hospital Radio when he was a spritely 81. He said: “I was a bit bored and I saw a story in the paper advertisin­g for new DJs to help run programmes at hospital radio. “I thought ‘that’s just the job for me’ so I had an interview, got the gig and have been there ever since. “I like to play music to get people’s toes tapping and smiles to their faces.”
