The name


In the magazine Zabadak (nr. 19) editor Ron Cooper asks DDDBM&T manager Alan Blaikley about the name Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich: “I can’t remember the exact circumstances in which Ken (Howard) and I suggested it to the group. We certainly realised it could be both a plus and a minus. It was partly inspired by the Hobbit characters (Bilbo, Frodo etc) in Tolkien’s The Lord Of The Rings. A great plus was that the boss of Radio London, Ben Toney, felt that it would be an excellent tongue-twister for his DJ’s to struggle with! As a result he programmed “You Make It Move” very heavily when hardly any other stations were playing it. I love the name!
