DJ rubbished rumours.
Derek Chinnery, now 87, was station chief from 1976 to 1985. He said: "On one occasion I asked him, 'What's all these rumours we hear about you, Jimmy?' "He said, 'It's all nonsense'."
The issue was then shelved - paving the way for Savile to abuse more youngsters. But Chinnery said there was no reason to disbelieve him, adding: "It is easy in hindsight to assume surely you would realise something was up."
Countless women have since come forward to say they were abused as kids by Savile and others at the BBC.
