DJ Dave Lee Travis has arrived at court to face 11 counts of indecent assault and one of sexual assault against nine alleged victims.
Travis, whose real name is David Patrick Griffin, is accused of committing the offences between 1977 and 2007 against alleged victims aged between 15 and 29.
The 68-year-old from Mentmore in Bedfordshire, denies the charges.
He was charged as part of Operation Yewtree, the police investigation prompted by the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal, but the accusations against Travis have no connection to the disgraced television presenter.
