Alan Freeman

Alan Freeman, legendary DJ, has died. My own tribute to the man is that when I was struggling for identity, and felt completely cast off from my generation, I found his programme "Thirty Years of Number Ones" on Radio 1 and it changed my approach to life, the purpose of life, and life itself, for me. His style was easily mocked in those later years, but his mission was to bring great music to people and he did it.

Alright? Not 'alf!
