Elton’s sore backside – 30 years ago

Scotland’s Radio Clyde is 30 years old. And Elton’s backside is no longer sore. 

Presenter Tim Stevens explained: “I remember Elton coming into the studio one day wearing a bright yellow jacket and my golden labrador Jasper – who I always took to to work with me – bit him on the backside.

“Thankfully, Elton was great about the whole thing. And most of the stars were laid back.”

Presenter Dave Marshall agrees on the informality between pop stars and presenters.

“We would go out to dinner with people like Elton John or Errol Brown from Hot Chocolate. It wasn’t at all unusual.”
