Rewind The 60s: Season 1, Episode 4
Today, Lulu is joined by DJ and broadcaster Tony Blackburn in the Rewind the 60s studio, and the two share their memories of 1966 and 1967. It was the age of psychedelia, flower power, and free love, and for Tony especially these were momentous times. A successful pirate radio DJ, Tony had an offer to come ashore and join a new BBC radio station just starting up. It was to be known as Radio 1. He tells Lulu about the experience of first walking into the BBC: everyone was in hippy gear while he turned up wearing a suit and tie. His stint on the new Radio 1 breakfast show broke new ground in broadcasting, and within a matter of weeks Tony was the most famous DJ in Britain.
