I see Johnnie Walker is starting a new Rock Show on Radio 2.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Johnnie, mainly from his time on the Radio 2 Drive time show. He’s the antithesis of the drivel-talking, fired-up local DJ: he clearly loves music, and he isn’t overly concerned with what’s popular or current. I wouldn’t say he’s changed my life, but he’s been a very welcome audio passenger in my car for many years.
On the other hand, I firmly believe that Chris Evans is a whoopee cushion in human form, and I have to change station whenever he’s on.
Which DJs do you like/remember fondly, and who makes you want to smash your wireless?
