    People in UK will know Danny Baker but possibly not elsewhere.
    He has been a presenter and DJ who is renowned for his record collection.
    Appears he is auctioning them off via Omega.
    Lots of mega rarities!
    Thought it may be of interest here

    Interesting. He will certainly have lots of rare vinyl.
    I am not a Twitter/X follower. Is Danny up to anything these days ?

    I follow him on Twitter as we share music and football in common!
    He actually tours and also writes books about his life.
    I have only read one but it was amusing with of course lots of musical references.
    People on here would enjoy them I suspect.

    I'm in the UK and have never heard of this bloke. What makes his record collection any more special than some random discog listing from John down the road?

    Due to his previous jobs he obtained lots of promos,acetates, autographed albums etc.
    He was prominent in the late 70s so plenty of punk and new wave. Plus items given to him by friendly artists who appeared on shows he was involved with.
    For example he has Bowie acetates which Bowie collectors are likely to fight over.

    Your British, a music fan and have never heard of Danny Baker? :shrug:

    Have you never read any music press, or listened to the radio?

    He’s been a journalist, a long standing DJ on BBC and various commercial stations and also appeared on numerous TV programmes!

    Could be a young person. Not really that surprising if so. I know of him because he was all over the place in the 90's and very hard to miss. By the time I left in 2010, much easier to miss.

    I'm sure he has but not in the last few decades.

    He was a DJ on Radio 2 and 5 live until 2019.
