Graham Dene

Graham Dene is a famous British radio presenter, most widely-recognised for his work as the breakfast presenter on London Capital radio during the 1970s and 1980s, following on from Kenny Everett’s Breakfast Show, and later working for Virgin Radio.

In 2006 he could be found on Magic 105.4fm and in 2008 he was the breakfast host for Smooth Radio 102.2.

He started his career at UBN, playing records for the workers of United Biscuits, before doing a brief spell at Liverpool’s Radio City as mid-morning host and Head of Presentation. His big break then came with the move to London Capital Radio.

Nine months ago, in April 2012, Graham was one of the launch presenters, along with David Hamilton, on another internet -based radio station called The Wireless , which is operated by Age UK and is aimed for older listeners over the age of 50 throughout the UK.

The station, which can reach over 12 million people on DAB, plays music from the fifties to the eighties, with specialist programmes on genres such as jazz, classical, folk and country whilst also giving advice on health, money and family matters.

A north Londoner all his life, he can now also be found south of the river, presenting on Radio Jackie. Graham is known to have been Princess Diana’s favourite DJ when he was at London Capital Radio in the Eighties – and there is even a rumour that Her Royal Highness secretly joined Graham in the studio for one of his breakfast shows…..
