On returning to our office proper this morning we learned that FABRICLIVE 54's mixer, David Rodigan, was appointed to recieve the Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (or MBE for short) in the Queen's New Years Honours list. The 60 year old selector was commended for his services to broadcasting having been a prominent force across the airwaves since 1978. Read the full story here.
We have no doubt that he'll be heartily celebrating down here on Friday when the man himself appears in Room One for Hospitality's annual takeover, but to spread the love a little, and mark this new recognition, we're giving you the opportunity to win an exclusive 'Give me some signal' t shirt (which you can view, and order, in all it's glory here). Look at it, it's so pretty:
Simply email us stating the station that Rodigan first appeared on (make sure you include your address and t shirt size) by Thursday evening and we'll pick one lucky winner before the doors open on Friday night.
Good luck! And a massive tip of the cap to one of our nation's most iconic broadcasters...
