  • KAY (Max):

    Deepest sympathy to all of Max Kay's family. He will be fondly remembered for all the joy he brought to so many people. I loved listening to his radio show with Jenny Seaton on Curtin 100.1. A great contributor to many charitable organisations. Another star will now appear in the heavens but memories will last forever.

    Dear Max, You brought so much pleasure to the people of Perth. Your cheeky jokes, your fabulous Scottish Songs, so very sad that we won’t see that happy man in his Scottish kilt.

    Go and tell the Angels your funny jokes Max! Xxxx

    A big loss to Western Australia, such a talented man. Enjoyed his great humour, and quality singing voice. And that Scottish accent - wonderful.

    Deepest sympathy to all his family.
