Lee Travis, better known around the world as D.L.T., was born in Buxton on 25th May
1945. He joined Radio Caroline South in September 1965. He transferred
up to Caroline North in its last few months. DLT began his career spinning discs at
the Oasis Club in Manchester on a part time basis. He went on an extensive tour of
clubs, ballrooms and theatres presenting and promoting his own shows. He was asked
by Herman to accompany The Hermits on their American tour. This led to radio and TV
broadcasts in many states and on his return to Britain he continued to promote his own
shows in Blackpool, Bury and surrounding areas.
DLT joined the BBC and today he is heard around the world on the BBC World Service.
