Keith Richards has helped save the day by donating a cheque for £3,000 to Isle of Wight's Angel Radio station when its transmitter was destroyed after recently being struck by lightning…
The station who specialise in playing music 'pre-1969' were initially somewhat suspicious of the donation being a joke but accountants confirmed it was in fact the real McCoy. Station programme controller Bev Webster remarked, "I don't know if Keith listens to us on the internet, or maybe he tuned in when the Rolling Stones played the Isle of Wight Festival a few years ago, but we couldn't believe it when we received his cheque in the post."
Bravo Mr. Richards!
