steve toon was one of the main djs with KFM a stockport based pirate that came on air first in 83.
He focused on local bands and the wierd wonderful and obscure, fulfilling a john peel sort of function for Kfm. KFM were busted I think in 85 and then got a licence in 87 or so and Toon was back on the air for a only a short while before there was a bust up of some sort btween him and the management. not heard of him since. a good bloke.

I've seen Steve Toon just a handful of times in the past 25 years. He was manager of the Brigade from 1985- 87.

By coincidence I had a chance meeting with Steve when I was working on the creative, for the advertising agency involved in the official launch of KFM in the early 90s.

It's about 5 years since I last saw Toon, however we recently became friends on Facebook. Good guy!
