Mike Read and Tony Blackburn join Dave Lee Travis on Magic

DJs unite with fellow veteran DLT in a new nostalgic weekend line-up


Magic has announced that DJs Mike Read and Tony Blackburn will start work with the radio station from Sunday 1 April, joining current network star Dave Lee Travis.


Read will host the weekend breakfast show on Saturdays and Sundays between 7 and 10am, followed by Dave Lee Travis and his sidekick “Dangerous” Dan with the DLT Show until 1pm. Blackburn’s show will air on Sunday afternoons from 4 to 7pm.

Mike Read said: “I’m going to love being back on breakfast, playing great music to our listeners as they get up in the morning. We’re all really looking forward to working with Magic, and having all three of us together every Sunday is going to be a blast.”

Tony Blackburn said of his show: “[It] contains three hours of great music, all from my personal collection covering the 60s, 70s and 80s… 4-7 is such a great time to be on air and with summer around the corner, I look forward to playing the best summer tunes to our listeners.”


Cath Ellington, managing director of Magic Network North, commented: “These are three of radio’s biggest and most respected broadcasters and we’re delighted that they’re on board with Magic… I think we must have the most celebrated DJ line-up in the country!”
