First Radio Memory

Post by keith rogers » Thu Feb 05, 2009 6:56 pm

Whats your very first radio memory ?
It could be a particular record that you associate with a station at that time,or just something that you remember.from that period ?
Was it Radio 1 or Luxembourg,Enterprise or Powerhouse ?
Emporer Rosko,Kenny Everett,Trickey Mickey, or Mr X ?
The list could be endless............ :happy144

Probabley Simon Bates doing the Top 40 on Radio 1 in the late 70s or it could be from the days when Radio 1 used to broadcast some shows off Radio 2, before Radio 1 became a stand alone station.

I remember Ray Moore saying he would be continueing on Radio 2 after the 7 o'clock pips, but on Radio 1 it would be DLT with the breakfast show.

well my first radio memorys were ones of my dad playing world service,
and i wasnt to impressed with it being about 8 years old,
but I started to take interest in the charts,
I think it was tommy vance the rock dj, I thought he was excellent, then as i got older moved on to, dare I say it beacon radios midnight line,
and at that time i didnt know pirate radio exsisted until tuning about and hearing stations like pcrl and powerhouse in about 1987.

I probably missed out on loads of good stuff, but their ya go. :skull

My first radio memory was more of a radiogram memory - our old SOBELL two waveband valve model with the four speed record deck - and the wonky pair of legs. But the fact that the dial used to light up used to fascinate me. My Roberts DAB radio lights up but somehow it's not the same.... The routine was after Sunday morning housework the Sobell would always be put back in its place, switched on and tuned to 1500m long wave in time for Family Favourites on a Sunday afternoon.

Then there was the very slick sounding Tom Browne who I'd listen to every week doing the Top 20 between 6 and 7. Too young to remember Pick of the Pops!!!

But maybe what sticks in my mind as my earliest radio memory is the constant repitition of the words TWO....FOUR....SEVEN on Radio 1 throughout the day from Blackburn, Walker, Edmonds et al.. This was pre Beacon days and we hadn't discovered BRMB then.
