Gained some initial fame as the first DJ for a pirate radio station, Radio Caroline, after which the BBC gave him some minor presentation jobs, including Midday Spin. He shot to fame in 1967 hosting a chat show, Dee Time, but disagreements about compensation led to that program's demise in 1969. In 1970, a contract with independent channel London Weekend Television ran into problems shortly after it was signed, and thus Dee had burned bridges both with the BBC and the independents. Essentially, his career was over. Elizabeth Hurley cites Dee as the prime inspiration for Mike Myers' Austin Powers character.
