Sadly GM you're wrong; the vast majority of DJ's just want to be famous and successful. Fame is a far greater drug than love of music. Ditto executives (recently) in the music industry. I was shocked, when I entered it in the 1960s, by how few really loved or knew about music. A few might have been inspired to enter because of love for music but very quickly other interests took over. Janice really DID love music - I knew the family as I gave brother Jeff the first industry job as a tea boy in the 1970s.

I remember hearing an interview with Mickie Most. He was quite candid about not really liking music that much. He said he just liked to 'get it over with quickly' as far as porducing was concerned. Strange bloke but he was obviously very successful with RAK.
MCR Lovely tribute on Radio 2 right now

Was your music ever played by Dr Demento...if so it's a badge of honour.

Green Man I would be shocked if there was music radio DJ who wasn't passionate and knowledgeable on music.

I haven't laughed reading that so hard since I read the National Lampoons magazines. You crack me up Robbie.
