Chris Denning, a former DJ on BBC Radio 1, has admitted to committing 29 child sexual offences.
Denning, of Basildon in Essex, was charged as part of Operation Yewtree, which was set up in the wake of the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal. He denied a further 12 charges in a short hearing at Southwark Crown Court earlier today.
The offences Denning admitted took place between 1967 and 1984, and relate to boys aged between 9 and 16 years old at the time.
Denning's Wikipedia page shows him as a habitual child sex offender, who has previously been associated with convicted paedophile Jonathan King.
Denning was one of the original line-up on BBC Radio 1 when the station launched in 1967. He was also the first announcer heard on BBC2 when it took to the air in 1964.
Judge Alistair McCreath remanded Denning in custody, pending his trial beginning on 24th November 2014.
