Radio boss leaving is a Real blow.

RADIO chief Jay Crawford has been forced to retire after a rare condition left him battling deafness.

Real Radio Scotland staff were told yesterday their popular controller - known as Bossman Jay - would not be returning to work.

Former DJ Jay, 57, lost his hearing in his right ear after flying to Mauritius on holiday in November 2010.

Doctors told him that his condition - labyrinthitis - might have been caused by deep-vein thrombosis on the long-haul flight.

It's left Jay struggling with balance and movement.

He said: "I find loud noise difficult to so I don't think I'll be at a concert again.

"That's sad, especially when I think of some of the gigs I've been to - front row at the Rolling Stones, meeting Paul McCartney back stage at a Wings concert.

"I'm sad to be leaving work - they've been fantastic to work with and have been incredibly supportive."
