Who gave Creepy McCreeperson his own TV show?

And I thought the ostrich was part of Bernie's contract.

Little known fact about Jimmy Saville (the white haired chap in the clip at the end) - he invented twin turntables, literally getting a guy to weld two decks together in 1947.

....and from there invented the job "disc-jockey", running his first "disco" upstairs from a jewellers in Calls Lane, Leeds, England in the early-mid-1950's. The term "discoteque" of course comes from earlier and from France...so ends the history lesson. But interestingly that silly white-haired man is the progenitor of a hell of a lot of what passes for music these days...and then there are the "other stories" about him but best we leave those alone....
