Description

From pirate radio to Buckingham Palace and an MBE, Johnnie Walker tells the amazing story of how he came to be one of the best known and most loved broadcasters in Britain, with a voice recognised by millions. Obsessed with music, the young Johnnie longed to move the crowd with the kind of beats he found irresistible. Deejaying in local dance halls and pubs around his childhood home in Solihull gave him a taste for playing his beloved music, and his success showed he had real talent. A great future beckoned. With luck and not a little front, he swung himself a slot on the newly launched pirate radio station Radio England, and Johnnie Walker's incredible career began. Now he tells the full and extraordinary story.show more
