    55: Russ Kane - Flying High with Kaned Laughter

    Who can forget Russ Kane and his little blue plane waking up London? 'Russ-Boy' as Chris Tarrant affectionately called him, was the morning voice of Capital FM’s ‘Flying Eye’ traffic-spotter plane for 20 years, as part of the behemoth Chris Tarrant Breakfast show.  It was the most listened-to commercial radio show in the world, with an audience in excess of 4 million. 
    However, life was not without tragedy for the on-air joker - whose wife died from cancer when their twins were just 5-years-old - making him rethink his life.  
    Russ has kept his hand in on air - joining BBC Radio London where his weekly, news reviews have earned a loyal following and on TalkRadio, where his Midweek Music Review is a much-anticipated highlight of Paul Ross’ Breakfast Show.
    He’s also had a great career in advertising, owned a music management company, has just written a novel and has been performing his hit comedy show: ‘Kaned Laughter’ on both sides of the Atlantic. 
    In this episode, Russ chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about dicing with death as the Flying Eye, saving the NHS £600 million a year and his sexy business cards…
