  Danny Baker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Danny Baker (born June 22, 1957, Deptford, London, England) is a British comedy writer, radio presenter and former television presenter.
Baker left Virgin in 2000 and in September 2001 joined BBC London 94.9 presenting a Saturday morning show from 8-11am, and just 6 months later, in March 2002, he took over the Breakfast show from 6-9am, though his last show was on Friday 27th March 2005.
Baker's most memorable moment during his stint on The Six O'Clock Show (due to it continually being resurrected for clips shows) is his altercation with a rail platform guard in which Baker can be heard remonstrating "Don't you know who I am?".
