ANOTHER blast from the past will hit Huddersfield when DJ `Diddy' David Hamilton visits the Rock Cafe.
David was a Radio 1 and 2 DJ in the 1970s and 80s and became known as the Housewife's Favourite.
His return to the Rock Cafe, run by Richard Downey, will mark the 30th anniversary of his appearance at Hudd ersfield's Starlight Club in Kirkgate in 1974 - which was owned by Mr Downey's father Barry.
David will appear on October 15 in the Rock Cafe's Paparazzi function room during a Tamla Motown night.
He will be chatting to guests, signing autographs and doing a one-hour DJ set from 11.30pm.
David will be the second famous DJ to pass through the Rock Cafe's doors in just two months.
Last month, Dave Lee Travis appeared at the venue.
He had also visited the Starlight Club in 1974.
Richard Downey said: "Dave Lee Travis was fantastic. There was great interest so we thought we would continue the success with an appearance by David Hamilton."
Manchester-born David, 64, said: "A lot of people from London haven't been north of Watford. But I love going round the country.
"Huddersfield has been a good stomping ground of mine. The audiences are warm and friendly. I haven't been for a while so I am looking forward to it. I hope lots of people will come and say hello."
He is currently presenting a daily show from 10am to 1pm on Prime Time digital radio.
The show is aired on digital radio and Sky Digital.
* Entry to the Rock Cafe event is free before 11am with a special flyer available now from the venue. Otherwise it costs £2, or £3 after midnight.
* David started his career as a scriptwriter at ATV before becoming an announcer at Tyne Tees in 1961.
* He became funnyman Ken Dodd's straightman and was nicknamed Diddy by the comedian because of his 5ft 6in height.
* He joined BBC Radio One in 1973 and regularly hosted Top of the Pops and Seaside Specials.
* After 13 years, he moved to commercial station Radio 210 in Reading.
