    Default Radio One DJ catchphrase

    He used to do chart countdowns sometimes in the Seventies and say in a growly voice

    Have Mercy!

    Who was it - really bugging me today

    Yep you right Daz - I finally found a blurb about him - belter of an enterainer on the airwaves! ...

    For music fans of a certain age, the Emperor was required listening - first on North Sea pirate station The Big L (Radio London) and then for some years on Saturday mornings on Radio 1. His energetic US style with jingles, clips and his transatlantic growly vocals combined to create a different kind of experience on staid UK radio. At Radio 1, he also successfully hosted the weekly record review show, Rosko's Round Table and brought his wide musical knowledge to bear. His catch phrases and sparky humour were of its time - "Have Mercy!" and all the rest.
