Pete “Bones” Ball
Pete “Bones” Ball was a founder member of the band Copperfield, who had a massive hit in the 70’s with “So You Win Again”. He was an avid listener to Mix FM, and was really going through a hard time, financially and health-wise. Pete was taken up in hospital the week we wanted to help him with some Christmas Cheer on Dear Santa, but we got the devastating news the morning of our call to him, that not only had he passed away, but his fiancé had also died the same week. We had James and Sandy, who nominated him originally, at our live broadcast that day, and Dear Santa decided to change tack, and assist in giving them a dignified farewell.
