This week’s show is different because it’s unique.

Whilst it will follow the usual format, it’s unique because it has never been heard before.

Our ‘Year under the Spotlight’ is 1987, the year ex-Prime Minister Harold Macmillan died. It was the year that MP Edwina Currie got into hot water (again) by stating that “Good Christians won’t get AIDS” and when Margaret Thatcher was returned to Downing Street for the third time following a General Election.
Back then we were listening to tracks from the likes of T’Pau, Rick Astley, Mel & Kim and Los Lobos.

We will be revisiting our ‘Vintage Chart’ from May 1965 and this week we have a new No 1 and new entries from Jim Reeves, Cilla Black and Marianne Faithful.

And during the last hour our ‘Children’s Favourite’ is another of those tracks you never actually forget and will probably remember all the words to as you join in…..

So give it up for the GREAT Golden Oldies Show with me – Andy Morris at noon on Saturday, for the fastest 180 minutes in the west.

If you would like a request for a Golden Oldie, a dedication or just a name check, let me know at andrew@radiosaltire.org and I will be happy to oblige.
