Martyn was a top bloke with a great sense of humour.

we had many great nights together.

His family were really nice to.

he is sadly missed.

i think i saw a while back on the nite owl website a date.

But that was a few years ago now.

Definately 2002.............I had not been with my now wife long and was absolutely gutted that she never met Martyn.

I wrote the tribute to Martyn that went into Manifesto and have been trying (in vain ) to find the draft copy to post it up.

Bless him. Loved listening to those intros. Before he plays the wonderful Lee Andrews he says something about a break from jocking. Did this happen? The man's boundless enthusiasm and love for the music also came across in SWONS. Out of the many talking heads, his was one of the ones I enjoyed the most. The only jock to come near him in unbridled energy terms is/was Tony Dellar from Cambridge.

Here are two photos of Martin. First one in our flat circa 1978 after Leeds Central the other at the Brooklands. Always remembered him as a non stop talker - you had to wait your turn.

My old mate Martyn,  Used to knock about with him quite a lot.                 Martyn passed away 18/9/2002.Much too early. He used to go out with Liz from Huddersfield for a time.He was one of the largest characters on the scene.Talk about a Dj when he was on at the Torch his words would all flow into one but he was up there with the best i.m.o.He Once Dj'd for me at the Frobisher suite and turned up with bits of toilet roll stuck all over his face as he'd cut himself shaving. Seriously though he's sadly missed and have many memories of him in many places. Always a pleasure  to be in his company  Regards Fred.

Loved him the lunatic!  ‘Another Martyn Ellis cock-up’ 🤣 spent a very interesting train journey with him from Manchester to Stoke one Sunday after a Central all-nighter. Crazy. May well have been to that Hanley all-dater Pete Smith mentioned.
