The Autobiography, Paperback


Young Johnnie Walker was obsessed with music and loved to share that passion.

So it wasn't long after he'd started DJing in dance halls and pubs around his Solihull home that he got his big break: he talked his way into a slot with newly founded private station Radio England - and launched his incredible career.

Here, he tells of forty years at the heart of British broadcasting, stints that involved working on the legendary Radio Caroline, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2; of the stars and musicians he's met and worked with; of how he won the hearts of his listeners and of his devotion to pioneering new music.

Johnnie also speaks candidly about the personal challenges he's faced: divorce, exile and his very public struggles with drug addiction and cancer.

His life has been inspiring and - above all - entertaining.

His autobiography is no different.
