Very much a big part of my childhood, the show was always on when mum did Sunday dinner as Dad made his way from the 'Legion.. Will always remember Soul Coaxing drifting over the airwaves, surprisingly as it became a Northern Soul Classic.. Sad for it to go but as I came to BFPO35 in 1984, BFBS was there and was like an old friend I hadn't met in yrs.. Thank you to all concerned.

I fondly remember those Sunday lunchtimes, when mum would be getting the Sunday roast ready. I always looked forward to hearing the voice of Bill Paul (not sure if that's spelt correctly) from Toronto. The background fading and hissing sounds, as radio waves made it across the globe, always made me think of just how far away all those outposts were. Delightful! I would love to get hold of just one of the many program recordings. Is that possible?

Happy days listening at home every Sunday, then later on my birthday a request whilst serving in Cyprus with the army for Olivia Newton john to sing take me home country roads, which I missed whilst on duty, but anyway thanks Mum and Dad the lads told me about it.

My mum & her family went to the bbc to record a greeting for their uncle Cecil who was serving in the Navy. Her brother , who was 4years old, sang "The Sailor With The Navy Blue Eyes" & was a big hit with the presenters. We wonder if there would be a recording somewhere still. It's especially dear to her as she recently lost her brother.
