The Truth about Goats

Nation thought Blackburn was already sacked


In what is described as ‘Yewtree deja vu’ radio fans were left confused over which 70’s entertainers were ‘still on the loose’.  In the same way you thought Corey Feldman was already dead, many of us – particularly listeners to his show – had assumed Tony Blackburn was already serving at ‘Her Majesty’s pleasure’.

So it seems

So it seems

With so many names and so many crimes to choose from, it is easy to see how the ‘continuity of shame’ gets muddled.  One cringeworthy Disc Jockey is very much like another; with minor variations in hair piece, dental work and ‘wandering hands’.  Most witness testimonies now have a generic quality, causing ‘that creepy fella off the telly’ to become the criminal description of choice.

Meantime as Mr. Blackburn maintains his innocence, the rest of us are left to ponder – which was the one we thought we were thinking of?  Jimmy Saville is a given, but who was that other period misfit? Bernie Clifton? The PG Tips Chimps? Or even St Winifred’s Choir? Admittedly for those kids from Stockport, it would have been the perfect cover story.

Regardless of abuse scandals, the fact remains that Tony Blackburn was permitted to continue his reign of terror on the airwaves for decades.  While Mr. Blackburn claims that the recent inquiry cleared him of any ‘wrongdoing’, it made no apology for Radio 2.  The draft report says celebrity abusers were ‘untouchable’, although in Mr. Blackburn’s defense if he had been literally ‘untouchable’ none of this would have happened.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
