  1. Hi, Does anyone have a download of this programme. It is no longer available on the Mediapages link. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Ian
  2. Thanks Hans. Really pleased to hear these programmes from the last day of Radio Scotland. Brilliant.
  3. Thanks for the recordings Hans. Here is what Buster wrote about his first hearing RNI: At 9.25 on the morning of January 28th I picked up a test transmission on 6210 kHz in the 49 metre-band. The first voice that I heard on the air was that of Elke, who made an announcement in German between every record, she was using a very catchy tune as a talk-over, which I later found cut was "Man of Action" by The Les Reed Orchestra. Shortly afterwards she was joined by Hannibal and Horst Reiner, Hannibal gave some station idents in English and asked for listeners reports to be sent to P.O Box 113, 8047 Zurich, Switzerland. I stayed tuned to the station until tea-time when it faded out.
  4. Hi Douwe, Was this Nederlandse Top 40 actually broadcast?? Do you have the full version?? Thanks Ian
  5. Here is the Paul Severs Show from 01-09-1974 that was not broadcast. https://www.mediafire.com/file/orfdchjgho2w4om/5_-_01091974_0900-1000_PaulSevers.mp3/file
  6. Tonight I positively identified Radio Eldorado on 1476 khz at 7.30 Uk time. Fairly good signal. I believe this was the same as I heard on Monday as listed above. Does anyone have an e mail address for this station? Thanks Ian
  7. I couldn't get you on 1287, as Radio o511 was too dominant. Maybe next time.
  8. I was in Filey on the North Yorkshire Coast today and heard the following between 1530-1630 UK time; 747 khz Radio 0511//1287 khz. weak and mixing with another station 801 khz I think Radio Jong Europe as I have heard it before 918 khz Radio Monique, plenty of ID's. Fair signal 1287 khz Radio 0511, better than 747, weak but listenable 1395 khz Radio Seabreeze, weak 1467 khz UNID I don't think it was Paradijs, but it was non stop oldies. Couldn't quite catch the ID. And ideas?? Weak but audible. 1602 khz Probably Radio Flandria I was using a small Grundif Yacht Boy 500 with no external aerial. Amazing they were all coming in, doing well for 100 watts!
  9. Thanks Ben. A new recording for me. Cheers Ian
  10. Hi Vincent, Thanks for the recording. The dj is Malcolm Barry.
  11. No I think you are referring to this guy and not Alan Simons. Clive Correll was an engineer with London's Capital Radio. He applied for a job in Saudi Arabia and, having been successful, gave in his notice at Capital. Unfortunately the Saudi work permit took a long time to come through, leaving Clive at a loose end. Caroline was short of a transmitter engineer so in September 1974 Clive went out to the ship to help out. He had previously worked for the BBC and diplomatic radio services so had plenty of transmitter experience. But he hadn't been a DJ before. Like most of the engineers who worked on the offshore stations of the seventies and eighties, Clive was called upon to fill a gap in the schedule. He presented his first show on Caroline on 16th September and presented the occasional programme after that, until he left the ship at the end of October. Alan Simons is correct.
