A press release arrives at TV Cream from drownedinmedia.com, bearing news that “legendary Broadcaster [sic] and five times Sony Award winning DJ, David ‘Kid’ Jensen, celebrates a milestone in British Broadcasting [sic] this year with an amazing 40 years service in the industry.”
It’s not clear why it’s been sent round today, given the actual anniversary is “on the 26th November”. Still, it’s always good to have a reason for looking back at Dave’s life and “the bands he’s met along the way”.
One of them appears to be somebody called “Gary Newman”. Apparently this person achieved great success and had a number of hit records. Ditto “Marc Bowlan”.
The press release also mentions a few “legendary broadcasters” Dave has worked with down the years, “such as the late and great Kenny Everet”. There’s also a list of the Kid’s “contemporaries still working in radio today”, including “Emperor Roscoe”. Sybil seems to be doing alright for herself, then.
Finally we’re treated to a couple of anecdotes from the man himself, including one concerning a guitarist called “Jimmy Hendrix”. There’s also a rundown of some of Dave’s TV work, which makes no mention of The Roxy whatsoever, but does acknowledge “the first 3 annual Brit Awards (known as the British Rock and Pop Awards)”.
