So our Elton remembers the radio of yesteryear according to an interview in this week’s Radio Times. “I love radio and grew up with it. It was a magical time where you had to use your imagination. My Sundays were built around Two-Way Family Favourites, The Billy Cotton Band Show, Round the Horn (sic), Movie-Go-Round…”
Speaking about this Monday’s The Elton John Show on BBC Radio 2 he concludes “my real ambition since I was a child was to be a DJ. Now I’ve done it once. I’d like to do it again.”

Do you have a copy of these shows, if so please get in touch.
Edit 20 Nov 2017: Since I wrote this post some audio of E.J. the DJ has surfaced. A clip was played during the Radio 1 Vintage weekend. I've also received a short off-air recording from David C. Mitchell.
