Thread Name: DJ Alan 'Fluff' Freeman dies.
Subject: RE: DJ Alan 'Fluff' Freeman dies.
He was a likeable and professional presenter, and one of the few who knew that the listeners would rather listen to the music than the DJ's waffle. From 1960-64 (before pirate radio started in - or rather, outside - the UK) he was the boss as far as young people were concerned. I still remember recording the latest hits off the radio, holding the mic from our old reel-to-reel recorder near the speaker. His show was the only one where you could hear the latest records every week. Pity, I don't have any of those recordings now. RIP Fluff.
