Radio 1 memorabilia
Hi, I am a collector of Radio One Merchandise, Jingles and Recordings between the dates of 1967 and 1992 and was wondering if there is anybody out there who is able to help me with my collection, e.g. by copying, selling, or whatever. I am willing to accept cd's and minidiscs. I am especially looking for the tune for Our Tune and Pick Of The Pops that was used in the late 1980's, and early 1990's. The Pick of the Pops Theme is still in use on Radio 2 with Dale Winton. I am looking for everything that is available - complete Jam and Pams CD's especially. I am also looking for complete Top 40 shows between 1973 and 1992. I have a few jingles available for copying - email me for details. Merchandise I am looking for is - radio 1 T-shirts, pens, key-rings, mugs, stickers - I will consider anything. I noticed on another message on the noticeboard that there is somebody looking for 2 Radio 1 films that were made in the 1970's - I am also interested in obtaining copies of these.
Thank you Philip

Identity of voice on AM 1053/1089 Talk Radio announcement
Can anyone tell me when Radio 1 finally went of the medium wave frequencies, it was replaced by an continuous repeated message which began "London calling.......this is London calling....please stand by for an important announcement...." IS THAT HARRY ENFIELD'S VOICE? because it sound like him when he used to do Mr Chombney Warner. If anyone would like the audio clip I do have it.

Simon Bates'Around the World Challenge Theme Tune
I am desperately looking for the theme which accompanied Simon Bates' Around The World Challenge in 1989. It was similar to Around The World in 80 days and Simon Bates broadcasted a 30 minute daily radio show from a destination.
It was sponsored by Allied Dunbar and about 20 seconds was used until Simon did a voice over at the start, introducing whereabouts in the world he is. The ending was used for about one minute, again Simon did a voice over before handing over to the summer roadshow.
I have been looking for this tune since then and have had no clues on where to look. I would be grateful if you could tell me if the theme was available, and Maybe where I could obtain it, what the theme was called and who composed it.
Name of early morning R1 magazine programme
Can you recall in the early 80's, on Saturday mornings on Radio 1 there was a kind of youth magazine programme, on at 07.00 for an hour? In fact I think it was the first show of the day, before Tony Blackburn. It covered issues affecting young people - can you remember what it was called? I just remember waking up, turning the radio on, waiting for the warm up jingles to finish and then this programme coming on.

Radio 1 Winning Song
In the 70s Radio One ran a competition for a listener to write a song to mark the change of frequency (was it 247 or 281?). Do you have the song or know the title? I remember a fragment of it; "well come on listen 247". I should guess it was about 1972-1976 . Its a great web site, incidentally. Just the sort of thing the internet does well.

Clip of Paul Burnett telephoning DLT show
There's a great clip I used to have on an old tape, but alas it went missing years ago, it was from a D.L.T. show and he was doing one of his quizzes. Paul Burnett phoned up and pretended to be a contestant, he pretended to be a woman from Chorley and started by saying " Am I on........now, can you hear me.........now" he then proceeded to tell DLT off for always making fun of that lovely chap Paul Burnett. Thanks for your time, Dave.

I'm a longtime collector of Radio 1 comedy shows, and over the years have managed to amass just about every comedy show broadcast on the station that's still knocking about in some format. However, there are some nagging gaps in the collection which I've been attempting to plug for some years now, namely:
Christmas At Rawlinson End Part One (22/12/1975)The Steve Nage Show (1988 - Victor Lewis-Smith doing a spoof DJ character) Hey Rrrrradio! - any episodes (1988-89) The Mary Whitehouse Experience untransmitted pilot (1989) The Mary Whitehouse Experience: Glasgow Radio Festival Special (05/07/1990) Dave And Rob's Comedy Phone-In (12/07/1990) The Chris Morris Christmas Show (25/12/1990)
Can you help with any of the above, or at least point me in the right direction?

Details of early morning Light Programme show
I left the U.K. IN 1967, I was just thinking about the old Light programme which I used to enjoy. Trying to remember the early morning sign on show around 5 or 5.30 am. and who was the presenter. I do recall they used to alternate with different personnel but I seem to recall the name David Symonds as a very funny presenter. This would probably be 1964/5. I think the sign on music was a tune call "Looking For Love" Can you help my poor old memory!!

Radio Jingles adapted from a
I am particularly interested in jingles which groups recorded as parodies to their hits at the time.
The jingles in question, as far as I know, are not on any CD; I remember them being aired around '73 or '74 and they were also popular with commercial stations. Radio Clyde in Glasgow used to have some, as did Radio 1. E.g. The Hollies "The Air that I Breathe " and Pilot "January" they were only in circulation for about 6 months and were recorded the same as the hit single except for words to describe the station. The jocks used to play them either before or after the bands track. You have a similar one on your site with The Who and "My Generation".
I am grateful to you for looking into this for me and perhaps we will get a result, I am sure you will enjoy them as well. Maybe someone out there has recorded some, and doesn't mind sharing. Thank you for your help and I hope to hear from you soon all the best.

Hello, Our association filmreakter a.s.b.l. is going to realise this summer a documentary film about the legend : “208 The story of radio Luxembourg” Filmreakter is a luxemburgish group who wants to make documentary and fiction films. We are all students who want to study film. I, 18, am a foundation member of this group, and also director of this project. The project “208 The Story of Radio Luxembourg” will be a documentary film who wants to tell the story of this famous radio, with a lot of interviews, the memory of listeners, and new images. When I did the first research about 208 I found this on an English webpage: “I meant to add that for many British people of my generation Luxembourg is identified with radio 208 which broadcast pop music long before our national radio station did so. Teenagers would tune in and listen every night. So you are an important part of our childhood and a source of happy memories.” It was one of the main reasons why I want to do this movie. An other reason is that nobody in Luxembourg know this radio. Even my parents did not know what 208 will mean. So I found out that in foreign countries Luxembourg is identified with radio 208 and that in Luxembourg nobody has ever heard about this radio. That’s why I want to do this film.
That’s also the reason why I’m writing you. I'm searching for Email addresses of the old 208 jocks ! You May have some of them. I have others so we May be can change. Thanks a lot ! (when you cannot give me the email address but pass a message to them , please tell me !!!
Here is a list of the people I'm searching for :
Abbot Nick, Adams Tony, Andrews Alton, Antony Peter, Beech Sandy, Blackburn Tony, Blewitt Tony, Boyle Katie, Brady Pete, Brandon Jessie, Brandon Tony, Brass Ian, Brown Benny, Burnett Paul, Carey Chris, Cash Dave, Christian Dave, Collins Rodney, Costa Sam, Day Roger, Dee Simon, Dell Alan, Denning Chris, Edmonds Noel, Evans Ken, Fordyce Keith, Fox Neil, Freeman Alan, Fordyce Keith, Graham Jeff, Grundy Stuart, Hall Tony, Henry Ollie, Hollingdale Paul, Hollis Mike, Holmes Chris, Jackson Jack, Jacobs David, James Tony, Jensen David, Jones Rob, Johnson Teddy, Joy Steve, King Gary, Knight Mike, Lloyd Wendy, Mathew Brian, Martin Nik, Miles Jonathan, Mitchell Warren, Moss Don, Murray Pete, Nicholl Colin, Norton Dick, Orchard Ray, Oxley Mel, Page Mark, Pearce Howard, Peel John, Peters Don, Powell Peter, Prince Tony, Read Mike, Rosko "Emperor, " Ross Peter, Savile Jimmy, Scott Jodie, Smith Tim, St John Norman, Stewart Bob, Symonds Dave, Taylor Shaw, Tilley Shaun, Vance Tommy, Walker Danvers Bob, Walker Johnnie, Wardell Don, Wesley Mark, West Liz, Williams Howard, Wright Steve, Young Jimmy, Ziepe Gary.
