The Judge presiding over the sentencing of Chris Denning has described the former Radio 1 DJ's actions as "inappropriate and depraved."
Judge Alistair McCreath addressed Denning directly in court as he sentenced him to 13 years in prison for sexually assaulting 24 boys.
He said: "It is not to be forgotten that all of this suffering was inflicted by you without thought for anything other than your own selfish pleasure."
Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for sexually abusing boys in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.
Denning, 73, one of the founding presenters on the flagship station, used drink and drugs including ecstasy to groom his young victims, London's Southwark Crown Court heard.
Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning is due to be sentenced today for a string of sex offences against boys as young as nine over a 20-year period.
The 73-year-old was arrested in June last year by Operation Yewtree detectives, and subsequently admitted 41 charges of assaulting young boys between 1967 - the year he was revealed as one of the line-up at the newly-launched Radio 1 - and 1987.
He was due to be sentences last week, but the hearing was delayed when the prosecutor failed to appear in court after being taken ill.
Det Ch Insp Michael Orchard, from the Metropolitan Police, has described Denning as a "dangerous serial offender".
