Radio 1 @ 50

I wasn’t there at its birth but I was there at 6am at the 50th anniversary station kicked in.

In a way it’s weird, as Radio 1 Vintage station appears for the next 3 days with an incredible schedule of new and highlight programmes it was always somewhere I’d wanted to work.

There’s been far too many memories of the roadshows, meeting Gary Davies and Jakki Brambles (yes she still spelt it that way then) at BBC Radio Goes to Town in Stockton High Street, the top 40s, Mark Goodier, The Man Ezeke – look enjoy it – heres the schedule

Update 01 : Breakfast programme with Simon Mayo as a guest has just played U2 – The Fly – still sounds amazing
