Junior Choice first went on air on Saturday 30 September 1967 - the first weekend of the brand new Radio 1 and Radio 2 - and was presented by Leslie Crowther. The show succeeded the old Light Programmes Children's Favourites, and in those early Radio 1 and 2 days it was a simultaneous broadcast on both stations. In February 1968 Ed, or Stewpot as he became known to children everywhere, took over as presenter and he stayed with the show for the next 11 years, until he handed the Junior Choice mantle to Tony Blackburn.
