Feb 202015

Back to normal this week with the Valentine’s Special last Saturday proving to be very popular and going down very well indeed – and thanks for all your requests and dedications.

So once again the GGOS will be split into three with Part 1 a mishmash of Golden Oldies sourced from my own collection. I found a ‘classic’ this week, one I hadn’t heard for years so I’ll include it. It’s one of those ‘I’d Forgotten I Once Knew That’ tracks too….
In Part 1, I will also include our ‘Children’s Favourite’ and this is one I’m sure you will all sing along with.

This week’s ‘Year Under The Spotlight’ is 1988.

It was in 1988 that Rowan Atkinson launched the new Comic Relief Charity Appeal on the BBC, the year Sandy Lyle became the first British golfer ever to win the coveted US Masters, when unemployment fell below 2½ million for the first time since 1981 and when Edwina Currie provoked outrage by stating that most of Britain’s egg production was infected with the salmonella bacteria.
Back then we were listening to music from Belinda Carlisle, Tiffany, Fairground Attraction and Enya.

Finally we will be checking out the top 20 best-selling UK singles in our ‘Vintage Chart’ from exactly 50 years ago. That’s the 21st. February 1965 to be precise and it’s the chart that we now follow every week.
There’s a new No 1 and new entries this week from Tom Jones, the Hollies and Roy Orbison.

Oh, and don’t forget – at about 1.00 pm, I will be drawing the winner of our ‘Legends of Darts’ Competition.
If you haven’t entered yet, there is still time.
We will accept entries up to 10 minutes before the draw.
All you have to do is tell us what the maximum is you can score with three darts.
Is it
a: 145
b: 180
C: 195?

Simply email your answer – a, b or c, to competition@radiosaltire.org or text us on 07507 33 22 44

Remember to tell us who you are – and provide us with a contact number so we can call you if you win..
And if you do win, you will be given two tickets to see this fantastic show at the Corn Exchange in Haddington on Sunday evening.

So travel back in time with me, Andy Morris, from noon (GMT) on Saturday.
