Tiles was a nightclub in Oxford Street, London, in the mid-1960s, whose audience consisted of teenage ModsOpened in February 1966 as "the underground city for the new generation", the premises also included a shopping arcade with record and clothes shops, a "coke bar" and a "budget beauty bar", and Kenny Everett was advertised as "Tiles' own Deejay" [2]. Later, the regular DJ was Jeff Dexter, who, like Peel, subsequently worked at Middle Earth in Covent Garden. Dexter recalled the club's atmosphere as very different from those exclusive London clubs which attracted fashionable people and were featured in the quality Sunday newspaper.
