who won ‘DJ of the Year’ at this year’s Sony radio awards for his
breakfast show on BBC London 94.9 will move to the weekday afternoon
show at 3-5pm. “People are unaware that I was actually born and raised
at 35 Marylebone High Street (BBC London’s HQ) in the old Studio Two to
be precise, back when it was still known as The Lord Reith Umbrella for
Unwanted Cockney Orphans,” Baker said.

and, yes, intimidated me. NOT getting up while it was still dark eh?

Baker will return to the station on Monday 17 October on the same
day that Jono Coleman and JoAnne Good present their first Breakfast
