Whatever happened to Bill Wilson? (The man who killed Atlantic 252)

I think the passage of time has kind of made the way Atlantic 252 ended look more interesting. Bill Wilson then CEO of Teamtalk media had a dream to create the uk's first 24hour sports station, bought RTL's shares in Atlantic 252 for peanuts but it went tits up for him within 6 months, he had to sell the entire business and the new owners had no interest in running an lw radio station. From reading old interviews with him from late 2001, he seems like a bit of an anorak and was very excited about getting his hands on Mornington House and an 800 foot lw mast. He's probably a good age now if still on this mortal coil ? Perhaps Paul Rusling would know as I think he may have worked with him as a consultant about the sale.
