   John Moran 


Having worked on Australian radio, John Moran  joined Radio Luxembourg in 1964. There he worked as an announcer for 2 years until moving to the UK in '66. He found difficulty in obtaining a regular income in London that year, working occasionally recording commercials and filming.

He commenced with the BBC in 1967, appearing on various Light Programme pop shows. When Radio 1 launched, he became the regular presenter of 'Scene & Heard', a programme about new sounds, pop news, views and interviews. The  programme ran every Saturday evening for 1 hour.

Alan (North London) says...
Didn't he do 'More from the Vaults' as lodged in mmy mind was him playing Russ Morgan's So Tired from '49 and that doesn't sound suitable for 'Seen and Heard' somehow.
