8.15am It’s pelting with rain, the traffic has come to a standstill
on the Holloway Road, home to Kiss 100’s studios, and the breakfast show
has been under way since 6am.
8.30am I am dispatched to the recording studio to meet DJs Bam Bam and
Dave Young. They look like extras from The Beach.
8.45am Bam Bam has invested in a website called Flight.com and gets a
ticking off from sales for littering his commentary with references to
’Visit Flight.com for the best deals,’ he announces. Young diverts him
with a press release about a Valentines’ Day promotion.
9.40am Bam Bam experiences a temporary lapse of concentration and runs
out of things to say. ’I can’t focus with young women in here,’ he
9.45am ’You’ve got to get into your zone. That’s why it’s so hard for us
to invite people into the studio to watch. We create our own sense of
reality and when people are looking on, it’s difficult for us to sustain
that focus,’ explains DJ Young. Hmmm.
10.05am Punters satisfied and thoroughly entertained, we file down to
the Paradise Restaurant opposite for the after-show breakfast.
