RIP Janice Long 4 Weeks ago  
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-59795298

Very sad to hear of the death of beloved former Radio 1 DJ and Top of the Pops presenter Janice Long. She was passionate and knowledgeable about music. She particularly loved Echo and the Bunnyman from her native Liverpool and chose them as her specialist subject on Celebrity Mastermind. She was the first female presenter of Top of the Pops and gave early breaks to the Smiths and Frankie Goes to Hollywood.

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.

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.

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