The Australian broadcaster, 73, joined BBC WM in 1982. He presents a programme every week, which is pre-recorded on Wednesdays.
He's quoted as saying: "It is wonderful to still be able to do the Sunday show. It is a very therapeutic thing. I come in and record on a Wednesday and put the show together. If we find we can’t do something, and I can’t tell the difference between 1963 and 1983, it’s not funny. Then you click back in and do it another way."
There's more information about dementia on the NHS website.
