‘Thank you so much to iHeartRadio for honoring me this way. Thank you to H.E.R., Brandi Carlile, Demi Lovato, for paying tribute to me,’ he began. 

‘It’s very touching, and I’m very humbled. Because when I first came to Los Angeles in 1970, radio was so important. I’d never heard radio in America before, because I’d never been here before, but it was just incredible to me. In England we had one station. Over here you had music coming out of the radio in all sorts of formats, all sorts of styles,’ he added.

‘But I have to say, radio is such an important thing to all of us. That’s where you hear things, that’s where you discover things, that’s why I like doing a radio show, that’s why being played on the radio for the first time, when you sit there and you hear yourself and you’re so excited — and it’s, for me what this award means, is that I still covet new artists,’ John continued.

He added that he tries to ‘promote young artists’ because ‘they need exposure,’ adding he’s had his ‘time in the sun.

He also gave a ‘special thanks’ to Lil Nas X, ‘because he is a wonderful artist and has balls of steel!’
