  2. Just over 50 years ago! https://pixeldrain.com/u/KSW1suXn 28061972 2025-2100 PaulMay.mp3 https://pixeldrain.com/u/ZCzofLnq 28061972 2100-2200 TonyAllan.mp3 https://pixeldrain.com/u/pXp5sjKh 28061972 2200-2245 TonyAllan.mp3
  3. Historical documents. Thanks for sharing.
  4. I lived in Troon for many years and when you look out to where the Comet was anchored, it is quite obvious that she was in Scottish waters. Yes, it was anchored three miles of Troon, but in a bay. I have spoken to many of the staff over the years and nobody knows why such a mistake was made.
  5. Ok, continue with Scotland! 😃 Here is Ben Healy from February 1967 with Swing Across Midday from the time the Comet was anchored off Troon in the Firth of Clyde. https://www.mediafire.com/file/zce9c9udldq0g56/00021967_1251-1355_BenHealySwingAcrossMidday.mp3/file
  6. Thanks Ben, the recordings you have provided are unique and great to have. Thanks again.
  7. Indeed Ben. It will be a land based pirate located in the Fife area on the east coast of Scotland. Interesting recording though.
  8. Interesting Ben. It think it will be James presenting and it is likely to be a land based pirate located in Fife on the east coast of Scotland. Given the chart rundown I would say it is late January or very early February 1972. I think it sounds like a night recording so likely start 0019. I will ask my contacts from that time if they remember this.
  9. Many thanks Ben, that is a brilliant recording with Brian Webb aka Brian McKenzie. If there are any more that would be fantastic. Thanks again for all your work Ben. Ian
  10. Hi Ben, I am sure I met James Hutchison at one point over the years. I think he was Scottish (as am I). I remember he had some recordings of Radio Scotland. I wonder do you have those to come? Thanks Ian
  11. Hi Jan-Fre, Hope you are well. Thanks for all the RNI recordings you are sharing. Ian
  12. There seems to be a problem at the start of the day with an afternoon tape of Bert Bennett being started at 0600 I assume in error, followed by Tony Allan live and then the Haike tape starts.
  13. Hi Ben, That was World Music Radio you refer to. It was indeed released on vinyl but back in 1973. The WMR I operated was Weekend Music Radio from Scotland. Ian
  14. I do have some somewhere. I will try and dig them out. I used the name Dave Anderson and handed the station over to my friend who called himself Jack Russell in September 1981 when I went to Ireland to work for Boyneside radio. Of course "Jack" run the station for many years and you never know might still come back on shortwave! Jose used the name Karen on WMR.
  15. Bryan Vaughan's last programme on 242 on 23rd May 1967, also featuring John Kerr and Mel Howard. Bryan was returning to Australia after working on Radio Atlanta, Caroline South, Radio Luxembourg and finally Radio Scotland. https://www.mediafire.com/file/r0jk9m24bdmchlf/Track08-00051967_BryanVaughanFarewell.mp3/file Tony Meehan with a pre-recorded farewell programme starting just after midnight on August 14th 1967. Tony also worked for a period on Britain Radio. https://www.mediafire.com/file/au65f3p7bd9bd5w/14081967+0000-0030+TonyMeehan.mp3/file
