David Kid Jensen to cover for Tony Blackburn
David Jensen is joining BBC Radio Berkshire to present some holiday relief shows whilst regular host Tony Blackburn is away.
David, who announced last month that he’s living with Parkinson’s Disease, will present two editions of Tony’s Friday mid-morning show.
The former Radio 1, Capital, Heart and Smooth presenter says: “It’s a daunting prospect, filling the considerably sized shoes of Tony Blackburn, so I’m very flattered that I’ve been invited to sit in for him for a couple of Fridays. I’m greatly looking forward to playing some tunes, having some fun and getting to know the listeners at BBC Radio Berkshire”.
Tony Blackburn adds: “David Jensen is someone I’ve known for many years – a fine broadcaster, and more importantly a really nice man. But I hope he’s not too good, because I want to come back”.
David’s two shows air on February 16th and February 23rd between 10am and 1pm.
He’s currently on Signal 2 hosting a chart programme and works at BBC Radio Surrey and Sussex.
