How Black­burn woke the na­tion

Daily Mirror - - STARS & TOONS -

eak­fast show TONY Black­burn is a fresh-faced 22-year-old on his first day at Ra­dio 1, 50 years ago today.

The Daily Mir­ror was there to snap him as he woke at 5am to host the sta­tion’s very first show. And today he re­turns to co-host a one-off break­fast show with Nick Grimshaw.

Grimmy, 33, jokes: “I don’t know that we’ll have too many songs that over­lap.”

Three-day dig­i­tal sta­tion Ra­dio 1 Vin­tage is live on BBC iPlayer ra­dio, DAB and on­line from 6am today un­til mid­night on Mon­day.
