Your favourite DJ

Recommended Posts

Ranking Miss P – on DBC (Dread Broadcasting Corporation circa 1980).

David Rodigan – Radio London, Capitol Radio, BBC1Xtra, R2.

Mark Radcliffe and Mark Riley (Mark and Lard) – together or separately on R1, R2, 6Music.

The late Charlie Gillett – BBC World Service.

Andy Kershaw – BBC whatever.

Oh yes, and our very own, dj melthebell.

 

Personally, I prefer DJs who play two or three tracks, tell the listeners what they were, and then play three more tracks, with very little chat in-between, apart from anecdotes about the musicians or the tracks they've played.

 

If I'd had the pleasure of hearing Wolfman Jack, I'm sure he'd have figured up there too.

I think everyone owes a bit of their musical taste to peel.

Growing up a teen in NY, was envious of the Peel sessions everyone got here. The only way to listen to them was on bootlegs and sharing tapes amongst friends.

indeed and the amount of bands and even scenes that owe a debt to him for opening them up to the public

Which disc jockey/s are and were your favourites?

 

I sometimes listen to Chris Evans but in the 90s it was Nick Abbott - where is he now?

 

I wanted to listen to Chris Tarrant but couldn't access Capitol Radio

 

I'm not keen on the chit-chat which goes on where the resident DJ natters to a whole lot of backroom staff for too long.

 

Nick Abbott is on LBC.

I agree on the first bold, I hate it when a DJ plays something new, that you like and then never says who it is by!

 

As for "The Wolfman", he played himself in American Grafitti, great film, here
