Doncaster man Ray Nortrop knew Jimmy Savile.
One of Jimmy’s former Mecca management associates, Jack Allison, was responsible for employing a resident disc jockey for Doncaster's 2,000 capacity Top Rank Suite on Silver Street.
Ray ended up with what was to become the top DJ job of that era in South Yorkshire.

The Edlington case involved two brothers, aged 10 and 11, who brutally assaulted and tortured a pair of fellow schoolboys in Edlington near Doncaster in South Yorkshire.
"The brothers – then ten and 11 – lured their victims to a secluded spot in Edlington, South Yorks, and subjected them to savage violence and sexual degradation in April 2009.
The older brother tried to strangle one of the boys with a metal hoop.
"A 12-second video clip shown to the court showed their 11-year-old victim – now 12 – with blood caked and pouring down his swollen face."
Seven children known to the Doncaster authorities have died in the borough since 2004.

The brothers assaulted an 11-year-old choirboy who "thought he was going to die" a week before the main attacks but police failed to interview the boys before they launched a worse attack.
Reports of arson and killing of ducks in November 2007 were not followed up, despite a legal requirement to do so.
The family of the brothers was known to nine agencies over 14 years but children's social care services were "reluctant" to get involved.

"The boys' mother asked that they be taken into care as she could not cope with their behaviour, bringing about their move to a foster home in Edlington, just south-east of Doncaster."
