The five disc jockeys profiled in this volume had very different musical tastes from one another but were all influential in the evolution of British popular music in the 1950s and 1960s and helped define the role of the DJ. The short biographies, with insights from friends, relatives and musicians and a selection of rarely seen photographs, discuss the presenters’ lives and careers and assess their broadcasting legacies.
