  • Johnnie Walker Meets The BBC’s Pop Pioneers, Tuesday, 22.00, BBC Radio 2

    These days it seems strange to think that such a polite, non-threatening figure as Tony Blackburn was ever any kind of rebel, but it illustrates how much of an appetite there was for pop in those days that even he was prepared to join the pirate ships. It was thanks to the pioneering work on those stations that the Radio 1 as we knew it finally arrived, and pretty much all of the personnel moved straight from the high seas to Broadcasting House. Johnnie’s going to speak to loads of them, while there’s also a tribute to Paul Hollingdale, the first voice on Radio 2, who died recently.

"Brian's Binatone is great for his cassettes!"
