DJ Emperor Rosko

Disc and Music Echo / 23 November 1968

Groovy, baby. Emperor Rosko, of course, was one of the big names from the days of off-shore pirate radio in the UK, and joined Radio 1 on its launch in 1967. I think it’s fair to say that he was an influence on the Austin Powers character, judging from this interview. He’s also continued to work both in Europe and America, and has a website which suggests that his free spirit hasn’t diminished!

There’s also a short piece about Aphrodite’s Child, who, although short-lived, went on to be regarded as a cult psychedelic and progressive rock band.
