This week sees me back in the studio for the first time in 3 weeks and I’m rarin’ to go.
Our ‘Year under the Spotlight’ is 1973 and I’ll be recalling what was making the news headlines back then and reminding us what we were listening to on our wirelesses.
For example, 1973 saw us joining the European Economic Community – or the Common Market as it was known back then. We were up to our eyes in the Cod War with Iceland and Princess Anne announced her engagement to Captain Mark Phillips. On the music front we were being entertained by the likes of the Carpenters, Perry Como and Dave Edmunds.
Our UK Vintage Singles Chart from exactly 50 years ago has a new No 1 and three new entries. Cliff Richard, his backing band, the Shadows and the Yardbirds have all appeared and we’ll start the countdown in the second hour of the show.
Then to finish, we’ll spend what time is left in pure indulgence – and if you would like a request, a dedication or just a name check, this is the part of the show for you. Just let me know.
180 minutes of magic and it all kicks off at noon.
I do hope you can join me.
PS. The GREAT Golden Oldies Show now has a Facebook page.
I’ll keep you up to speed with any news and views and if you would like a mention on the show, just post something there and I’ll do my best for you.
