… in 1976, station bosses fell out with Johnnie Walker
over the music he played and about how it was seen not
to fit the station’s daytime music line-up.
He was also told off for criticizing The Bay City Rollers
– then at the height of their popularity – on air,
describing them as “musical garbage”.
As a result, he left Radio 1 and moved to the U.S.A.
where he stayed for five years.
During his time in the states Walker worked for radio
stations KSAN in San Francisco, WHFS (historic) in Bethesda,
Maryland and also recorded some shows for Radio Luxembourg.
