  Trevor Dann


Trevor was a producer at Radio 1 for many years during the 1970's and 80's. He produced Roundtable, the Dave Lee Travis shows and 25 years of Rock (1980).


His BBC TV work included the Old Grey Whistle Test and Live Aid. In 1980 he moved to London's GLR as Programme Controller.


Trevor, a long-standing friend of Matthew Bannister, came back to Radio 1 in January 1995 as Head of Production. Trevor's brief was to remove behind the scene staff and old style presenters missed by Matthew Bannister.


March 1996; "If I go down in history as the man who stopped Radio 1 playing crap records, then I shall be a proud man." He banned Quo and the Beatles. A Daily Mirror poll in March 1996 revealed that 91 per cent of readers wanted to hear the Beatles single Real Love played on Radio 1.




Trevor later became BBC Head of Music Entertainment, and from June 2003 co-presented the weekday breakfast show on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire with Emma Maclean.
