MIKE READ loves to talk — and not just when he’s on air.
The Henley resident and broadcaster, whose autobiography Seize The Day was published this month, is a goldmine of showbiz anecdotes.
Read, 67, was a DJ at BBC Radio 1 for more than a decade and presented its breakfast show from 1981 to 1986.
He interviewed some of the biggest names in pop music, including Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney, Cliff Richard, Phil Collins and Wham!
He also presented TV’s Saturday Superstore and Pop Quiz during the Eighties.
