The best what? (I heard it said he was a great something or other I didn't catch it)

Well, seriously though, he was another great innovator, I grew up listening to him.
When I was 8 years old, I had been not concious for two days in a Chertsey hospital, and he was the first voice I heard, and he played something by the Four Tops.
The next day he played me a request! He was getting a lot of stick for not liking T.Rex at the time, and played "Metal Guru", and said this is the first record of Bolans he had ever liked, and played it again.
So, you do have to say Blackburn is important in the DJ, as I`m sure many people have memories like mine.
Being a big softee, I was also hooked on Simon Bates` "Our Tune". They were great.I was working in a factory at the time, and it was not uncommon to see all the sewing machine ladies in tears at ten past eleven every morning.
And don`t forget the truly great and very missed Roger Scott, who embraced the change over from vinyl to cd in a way in which nobody else could have done.
The radio was suddenly a must listen on Saturday afternoons.

With you all the way Martin.
Tony loves music and always did which makes him fine in my book.
Roger was not only a brilliant DJ but a dear friend (who would have been called at my trial were he not dead - as were many others).

Love of music doesn't make one great, simply interesting at times (Dave Lee Travis and his championing of the full version of Private Investigations springs to mind as a parallel example). He's the best Tony Blackburn in the history of the planet... but 'best' as a DJ? He is competent, and tends not to irritate me.. but that isn't a mark of greatness...

Anyone else listening to Alice Cooper on Planet Rock?
