Radio 1: The Jocks

JORDAN, Paul

Yeah, not the greatest picture. Looks like a Yorkshire Ripper suspect.UNREMARKABLE youthful mid-eighties recruit, mainly restricted to swing jock duties and Friday afternoon show, before being shuffled out again not long after. No doubt stuck pins in a knitted effigy of Simon Mayo on a regular basis.

    Perhaps a little unfair, may have been small time at radio one but was highly regarded at radio city (the stanley street version, not the pastiche up the tower) Ended up as senior management for emap in the north west, Last seen back at preston, for central radio.

    He never really fitted in and I think he struggled moving from the light touch producer world of commercial radio to the bureaucratic BBC. His first link out of Newsbeat went something like… PJ: Knock knock (to newsreader). Newsreader: Who’s there? PJ: ***plays famous presenter ID jingle*** da da da da Paul Jordan. Great stuff!

    Not quite as obscure as Ian Brass from the same era, a Radio Devon presenter who was given the little listened to Saturday evening slot for a few months and then went back to Devon. Also of this era and from a similar part of the world, Andy Batten Foster, who did some co presenting duties on the Saturday Sequence, before heading back to Radio Bristol.
