Paul Hollingdale (born Paul Wynn; 30 March 1938, in Brighton, Sussex) is a British radio presenter who presented the first ever programme broadcast on BBC Radio 2, Breakfast Special. Hollingdale had presented a show on CNBC in 1962, and can claim to be Britain's first ever pirate radio disc jockey.[1] Hollingdale was also the first presenter on Radio 210 in Reading, launching the station in 1976 with The Breakfast Show which ran from 6.00am to 10.00am. For a spell he also presented an evening show, between 9.00pm and Midnight two days a week, giving him just six hours from the finish of one show to the start of the next.
