Re: 'Old Timers' Pirate Pint

Hi Rick, 27 years ago I would have been about 16. I have come to the conclusion that I do look slightly older these days. I'm sure I heard you on County Radio on FM after Sounds Alternative had closed in '85? Maybe over Xmas that year.

Re: 'Old Timers' Pirate Pint

Hi Keith and Rick, yes for sure lots of things have happened.... but 27 years since I was listening to Sounds Alternative... really makes me feel old. In another 27 years time, we will most probably not be here. That is what is worrying me. But I don't really feel or look much older than I did back ...

Re: 'Old Timers' Pirate Pint

Re: Oh No Keith Rogers on the radio again

Why is it like listening to County Radio? For me, it's totally Sounds Alternative! ;)

Re: Farpoint

I have plenty of Farpoint tapes, but it might be a while before I can get around to encoding them.

I've just about finished encoding my entire back catalogue of County Radio cassettes so hopefully those will be uploaded to the site later this month.

He used to run Radio Timperley from his shed in his back garden (although his mum didn't know!)

Re: County Radio

Hi Keith, I don't think the FM was coming from Blades House when I made these recordings on 16th March, because it would have been very weak at my location if that was the case. When it was coming from West Brom over Easter '86, it was a very very poor signal with me on FM. The MW was strong though,...
