As a young kid of the 80’s I was always listening to the radio, I used to present my very own Radio 1 roadshow to my neighbours, putting my speakers up to my bedroom window and playing my music loud waiting for my mum to shout “ TURN THAT RACKET DOWN”. I was well known at school for the boy who collected every single no1.
