Drivetime radio takes on a whole new meaning with BBC Thames Valley
FM’s new presenter, John Hutson.
For when Hutson is not hosting Thames Valley’s Sunday afternoon Classic
Rock Show, he doubles up as the RAC’s national head of PR.
Music buff Hutson, who owns one of the UK’s largest private music
collections and previously hosted the classic rock show on BBC Radio
Gloucestershire, uses all his own tapes, CDs and records for the
’The BBC gives me the radio station and I do the show. I’m very
fortunate as I can basically play what I like,’ he enthuses.
Just three weeks into the show, which on a good day can be heard in
eight counties, Hutson is already building up a faithful following.
’I had my first fan letter the other day,’ he tells me. ’It was from
some woman in Winchester, who said she was ecstatic about the new rock
show. She said I had brought joy to her heart.’
Surely a PR first.
