Elton presents old friend Johnny Walker with an award marking his lengthy career in British radio.Elton attended the May 12 Sony Radio Academy Awards at London's Grosvenor House, according to the May 13, 2004 Independent.

He gave BBC Radio 2 presenter Johnnie Walker a Gold Award for 40 years of broadcasting. Early on, the dj had ''championed'' Elton, doing him ''so many favours.''

The singer added that Johnnie was a ''fighter in every sense of the word,'' in obvious recognition of his nine-month colon cancer treatment.
