I claimed in me diary yesterday to have set up the world's first disco in Leeds in 1948. By attaching the inside of a valve radio to the gramophone's pick-up, I was able to amplify the sound sufficiently for dance-halls - until the valves overheated that is.
Me work in the dance-halls was eventually spotted and I was asked to move on to radio where I rapidly acquired national fame, first with Radio Luxembourg, then the pirate radio ship Caroline, and finally with BBC Radio 1.
On television I became one of the stalwarts of BBC Television's Top of the Pops, transferring me radio personality on to the small screen with consummate ease.
I was the programme's first presenter, hosting the show from a converted church in Manchester - and even co-presented the final show in 2006.
I'm enjoying this writing about meself... hope you...
