Stuart Henry

24.02.42 - 24.11.95


Following six years as an actor, Stuart Henry joined 'pirate' Radio Scotland and moved to Radio One at its launch.

He presented 'Midday Spin' on Radio 1 when it opened in 1967 causing quite a stir at the station with his long hair and colourful clothes. During the early seventies he presented a very successful Saturday morning show 'Noise at Nine' with over 11 million listeners.

His weekly pop show included a spot requesting missing youngsters to get in touch with their parents. Some listeners however thought his speech impedement due to MS was caused by drink or drugs and he was sacked by Radio 1 management in the 1974 DJ shake-up.

He then moved to Radio Luxembourg where he presented various night time record shows. Later he was joined on air by his wife Ollie. Radio Luxembourg told Stuart that as long as he was able to talk he would always have a job with the station.

Sadly, Stuart died at his Luxembourg home in 1995 after a long battle with multiple sclerosis.

Anyone remember or have recordings of Stuart's programme section where he played the Approdite's Child track Rain and Tears as a sort of chill out and relax session? I'd love to hear him introducing it. Happy memories.

He had a fantastic voice for radio. What courage and resilience he displayed when MS struck him. Top, top DJ!

I had the great pleasure if supporting Stuart at a Radio One Roadshow in about 1971 and it was Stuart who introduced me to his 'sig-tune', which was of course: 'SOUL FINGER' from the 'Bar-Kays' BRILLIANT!! Thank you Stuart...R.I.P. Bryan S.

I'm guessing here Terry, that the only full recordings of the the great Stuart Henry, will be stashed away in attics, on cassettes. Like you, these snippets take me back to his Saturday morning shows (when Radio1 was actually any good) followed by the Emperor, then perhaps dear old Fluff spinning some Saturday afternoon prog. Those was the days, sir...those was the days...

Thanks. Wonderful stuff from a great & innovative DJ, a blast from the past which sent tingles down my spine.
Are the complete recordings available anywhere?
