Alan 'Fluff' Freeman

When you consider how old this guy was when he was still broadcasting in the UK on it's trendy BBC pop station it's hardly any wonder that Radio One needed a revamp. But it's amusing to note that he still ended his days playing heavy rock with a bit of classical to boot.

A weird combination that seemed to work perfectly. But can you image the equivalent nowadays ?  A DJ playing Trance dance music and throwing in a few clips of Brass Bands perhaps? They would probably laugh him off the airwaves.

Anyway this is how to open a radio show. One and a half minutes before the first track kicks in but a spectacular opener that still sounds good today.
Bless him. Gone but not forgotten.
