Book Description

31 Mar 2005
Ed 'Stewpot' Stewart is one of country's best loved DJs. In this intimate and very frank autobiography he reveals the truth about his extraordinary career that has taken him from blagging interviews with Nat King Cole for Hong Kong radio, to becoming one of the best-known voices in the country. As a DJ on the pioneering pirate radio station Radio London, he was instrumental in putting the swing into the Sixties along with legendary names such as John Peel, Kenny Everitt and recent 'King of the Jungle' Tony Blackburn. He went on to present one of the highest rating radio shows ever broadcast in the UK and he remains a much loved part of Radio 2's schedule. He also reveals how his remarkable love for his wife has found new life after her lover moved into their shared home! Packed with celebrity anecdotes, this is the ultimate behind-the-scenes portrait of life as the original superstar DJ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now then, now then. 28 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
With the ongoing Savile revelations, this book is rather eye opening. Specifically:

"I met my wife when she was 13, in 1970......"

and

"I arrived at 7pm and was greeted at the door by what I can only describe as a 13 year old apparition! She was simply stunning."

Ed was in his mid 30's at this point.

The book itself is badly written, narcissistic, boring, contains long rants against the BBC management who "let him go" and devotes nine pages to his single appearance on The Weakest Link.

It's awful, diabolical, second only to Don Estelle's autobiography. So for those of us that enjoy reading self important badly written claptrap from the faded stars of yesterday, this is a definite 5 star purchase! Especially since its considerably cheaper than the work of the aforementioned Mr Estelle.

3.0 out of 5 stars So bad it's good................ 19 July 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Does anyone remember that kitch 1950's low-budget movie called "Plan Nine From Outer Space" by the American film-maker Ed Woods? In later years it acquired something of a cult following due to the fact that it was SO bad that it had a sort of weird fascination. This book has a similar appeal, hence the three stars. In conclusion therefore I would just like to say "Ed Stewart, you are a cult!!"
