Bam Bam joins BBC London 94.9
Former Kiss 100 and Capital DJ Bam Bam has re-surfaced on BBC London. His first show was covering for Danny Baker on Friday and is scheduled to re-appear next week.
Bam Bam, or Peter Poulton to give him his real name was famously sacked from Kiss 100 in April 2006 after attracting a record fine for owners Emap. He then appeared at Capital 95.8 via a high profile marketing campaign. He left before the end of the year when Paul Jackson arrived as MD.
Peter's opening link went along the lines of: "Bam Bam felt like a good idea as a name when I was 24 years old and working for dance music radio stations. It all worked, it all fitted. I'm 38, nearly 40 years old, I have children and a house now, I am stuck with a nickname that doesn't fit anymore but I can't shake it off."
Bam, as he is now calling himself, will be back on BBC London on March 19th.
