    For Tommy Vance was the man
    perfect voice for TFRS

    incidentally there’s quite a few Track lists and recordings available online of The Friday Rock show, but nothing regarding his show on Saturday which was called Rock on.

    John Peel played a lot of good stuff that you wouldn’t hear on daytime radio.It was a mixed bag though because he also played arty/experimental music that was tough to listen to.

    I liked Noel Edmonds when he presented the Radio One Breakfast Show in the seventies.I was first introduced to the music of Billy Joel and Harry Chapin via that show.When D.L.T took over from Noel I stopped listening and turned over to Rsdio 2 instead.Although I was born in 1960 and loved the pop music of the sixties and seventies I always had a soft spot for Radio 2.In the early seventies when I was off school I used to listen regularly to Pete Murray's Open House and Tony Brandon.

    Mine was Adrian Just on a Saturday morning. It was full of funny clips from T.V. and Radio.

    I love Brian Matthew! Radio 2 isn't the same without him.

    Brian Matthew (no S at the end) was a great broadcaster as well - he was one of the original line up (as Genome tells us) on Radio 2. He was very much like Bob Harris as well, although I would put both of them in the same ballpark as John Peel.

    Did anyone like Brian Matthews? He had a good voice and was very smooth, though not as knowledgeable as John Peel. You knew it was him when you heard him. His voice turns up on a lot of 'Live at the BBC' LPs and CDs.

    I have a couple of annual style books from the late '60s and early '70s with features on radio DJs, a lot of the pirate stations employed Canadians for some reason, and there was a Radio Caroline alumni living in my home town over here, the local tv station was all over him when that Ship That Rocked film was out.

    He did the Top 40 on Radio 1 in 1982-1983 - I used to keep finding C90s with his voice on, introducing the Human League, Duran Duran, Dexy's Midnight Runners and others.

    Agreed, he had a great voice for rock radio and he knew his stuff.
