I remember his breakfast show on Radio 2. Many thought him an odd choice at the time but I enjoyed his show.

RIP

I heard your comment on the JV Show today Helen

To me the whole thing feels like a piece of history

I really enjoyed that period of time but still listened to Radio One in those days so never really got to hear much of Derek's show which in a way I now regret Sad

Can't remember who was on R1 back then but I'd given up on it for a lot of the daytime listening, if I wasn't at work.

Strangely it feels a bit historical to me as well but I'm glad I listened. One thing I do remember him having was the sports news with a much younger John Inverdale, Ian Darke and there was a female whose name I don't remember.

I remember hearing Jamieson's Radio 2 breakfast show on occasions and I thought it was awful. I think Simon Mayo was doing R1 at the time which provided a much better alternative.

He was on late at night with his wife SF, some time after he left the Breakfast show but he was never on at lunchtimes, that was Jimmy Young territory! I don't think I ever heard the evening show.

I remember him and his wife doing the late night show and remember him as being quite funny.
