A Conversation with Tim Blackmore
Tim is one of the founding parents of British pop music radio. He helped launch Radio 1 in 1967, helped reboot Capital in 1977, and practically invented the independent audio sector with his company Unique in the 1980s. He was also one of the founders of the original Sony Awards and of The Radio Academy itself.
He describes the incredible reaction to his announcement of ill-health, contemplates his legacy, and passes on a farewell message to an industry he has helped nurture for 60 years.
