    Can't remember their names, but I liked the Radio Caroline DJs at the end of the 70s/early 80s.

    Nicky Campbell and Pat Sharpe were OK, too, as was Chis Tarrant in his early days.

    Dave Pearce now does a late night thing on Radio 2 and I used to listen to him on Radio 1 in the mid to late 90s.

    I didn't think much of Simon Mayo when he was a Radio 1 DJ, but his Five Live show was brilliant.
