Absolutely not. I remember his shows in the mid-seventies and they were not far removed from American album rock radio. He played artists like Robert Palmer who would be seen as almost MOR nowadays....

I put on Radio 2 in the car yesterday afternoon and was surprised to hear them playing Perry Como. It wasn't exactly unpleasant (why do they call music that's quite hard to enjoy "easy listening"?)...

Quick and unscientific test of the time from switch-on to station playing:
