EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the iconic Tony Blackburn, pictured in Wales in 1996. Antony Kenneth Blackburn, a renowned English disc jockey, rose to fame during the 1960s through his broadcasts on pirate stations such as Radio Caroline and Radio London before joining the BBC. Notably, he holds the distinction of being the first DJ to grace BBC Radio 1's airwaves when it launched in September 1967. Throughout his career, Blackburn has made significant contributions to various radio stations including BBC Radio London, Capital Gold, and Classic Gold Digital. The image showcases Blackburn's undeniable charisma and style. Sporting a striking gold chain necklace that adds a touch of glamour to his ensemble, he exudes confidence with his headshot framed against an eye-catching sequin-covered jacket. The photograph perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the 1990s with its bold fashion choices and stage-worthy attire. Taken on July 5th, 1996 by Mirrorpix for Memory Lane Prints collection, this portrait immortalizes one of Britain's most beloved DJs at a time when he was still actively shaping the music industry. It serves as a nostalgic reminder of Blackburn's enduring influence and impact on British radio broadcasting throughout the latter half of the twentieth century.
