Let's Hope They Wore Hard Hats...

Former BBC Radio 1 Breakfast DJ Kevin Greening (No, I'd never heard of him either...) died from a drugs overdose after taking part in a gay bondage session, an inquest has heard.
Sad, but not really shocking, given other recent reports of DJs gone wild. Must be the close proximity of the microphone...

However:
On the day he died, he had been in a leather sling attached to scaffolding in the bedroom of the flat occupied by his boyfriend Sean Griffin, the inquest heard.

"Kevin and I had a very happy and very vigorous sex life," he said.

"It was not conventional by heterosexual norms perhaps but it was a sex life which was vigorous and imaginative and we enjoyed each other."
'Not conventional by heterosexual norms'..?!? Was it conventional by any norms....?

And if you trace back the previous BBC reports, you can see that his agent was worth his hire:
Greening's agent Chris North said he died "peacefully" in his sleep on Saturday.

"Greening's agent Chris North said he died "peacefully" in his sleep on Saturday"

I guess his sleep wasn't "conventional by heterosexual norms", either...

Back in the day I thought KG was a fine DJ. His weekend breakfast shows had an assuming surreal comic edge to them. Alas he was shafted by Radio 1's move towards a more celeb based DJ format in the wake of Chris Evans.

His obits have been pretty much universally favourable, and I'm sure a lot of his fans will be sorry to hear the sordid details of his end. Pity that it's considered newsworthy.

Haven't listened to Radio 1 for about 20 years...

I don't think I've listened to Radio 1 since Mark & Lard finished in 2004. How long it was since I'd listened to anything but them I would like to say. I think it's called growing up.

No wonder the fake company on his shows was called Blowchap...

Any one know what that weird music was that used to play behind his farmers character?
