Dave "Nicey" Nice Dies
The Weasel is fairly sad today to hear of the death of the Nicey, the radio legend who died at the age of 122, just equalling the longevity of Madame Calment.
Former members of Bachman-Turner Overdrive were contacted and said to be "distraught". "It's not good news, that's for sure, " said a minder.
David Nice emigrated to Europe from Australia when he heard that someone had invented the wireless, and was soon to be heard regularly on Radio Bilderberg, pumping out hits to "pop pickers". (Pop picking took place in southern europe at the time, but is now largely done by Romanian refugees)
When the BBC realised that Bert Kaemfert was not such a big draw with the under 30's, they recruited Dave Nice for their flagship programme, "Pick of the Crops" - programme that delighted agricultural workers throughout the land.
Sadly, Nicey's easy style and his innate charm became anachronistic in the face of changing public tastes, such as coprophilia and Brookside.
He ended his days in a nursing home, scandalising the nurses by pinching their bottoms and shouting "poptastic"
The Weasel misses him.
