Thread Name: DJ Alan 'Fluff' Freeman dies.
Subject: BS: DJ Alan 'Fluff' Freeman dies.
One of the country's best known DJ's, Alan "Fluff" Freeman, has died aged 79.

Freeman, whose catchphrases were "Alright pop pickers?" and "not 'arf" will be remembered by many here in our growing up years presenting "Pick of the Pops" before moving to host shows on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2.

Freeman, who was born in Australia, had a distinctive presenting style. He died in a retirement home in west London, and continued broadcasting until a couple of years ago.
