  1. Thanks, Bert - although I already knew that from Wikipedia
  2. Thank you for your replies , Juul Omnivore. Juul: I am surprised that 192 TV and radio stations are not part of the same organisation. Omnivore: It IS still a mystery to me - they could just have played 40 songs without putting bogus positions against the. Toto's Africa had no business being No.1 if it was based on chart performance or sales. Still, it was enjoyable, and there's a lot more to be viewed at OK.ru. I was watching this one earlier today https://ok.ru/video/2750911089163 I didn't hate Belgium but I didn't want to add it to my collection either. I am in the UK, and back in the early 1970s I would often buy records by Dutch acts (Bolland & Bolland, Mouth & MacNeal, Peter & His Rockets, Oscar Harris, etc) via an importer in Kettering, and still have most of them today, alongside a whole load of additional Dutch tracks I bought as part of the Golden Years Of Dutch Pop Music series.

  3. Hi I will start with two apologies. Firstly, I don't speak Dutch so I have to write in English. Secondly, it's a bit off topic, as it relates to TV but as 192 TV also has a radio station, it's relevant. I enjoy the old Top 40 charts that are counted down on 192 TV but they don't always seem to be authentic cha rts. For example, I have just enjoyed a 1982 chart, which can be streamed here https://ok.ru/video/2198551661119 There is no indication of date on the upload, so I searched for two tracks that are in the chart - Best Love by Rose Royce , which is listed as No. 34 , and Toto's Africa, which is listed as No. 1. The problem is that neither ever held those positions in either of the two Dutch charts. Rose Royce's track is shown here https://dutchcharts.nl/showitem.asp?interpret=Rose+Royce&titel=Best+Love&cat=s and here https://www.top40.nl/rose-royce/best-love-1606 while Toto's hit is here https://dutchcharts.nl/showitem.asp?interpret=Toto&titel=Africa&cat=s and here https://www.top40.nl/toto/africa-1236 ach ieving a peak position of No. 4 in the first chart and No.2 in the second. So how is it No.1 on 192? I thought maybe they were using the annual chart but t's No. 18 on the annual list here https://www.top40.nl/bijzondere-lijst/top-100-jaaroverzicht/1982 and No. 25 here https: // dutchcharts .nl / annual overviews.asp? year = 1982 & cat = s I would appreciate it if anyone can solve this mystery and tell me what week was supposed to be used for the video.
  4. Hi


    Thanks for posting this! - I have just finished listening.


    I was hoping it might be uploaded regularly, but, as I'm sure you know, such postings have now been banned from the forum.


    That's a great shame.


    My internet connection isn't good enough to listen to this online, so thank you for the opportunity to hear it






  5. Hi Theo


    I just wanted to thank you so much for the opportunity to easily acquire and play the updated versions of A Month In A Life.


    I understand that the administrators are not allowing this to be posted any more. That's a great shame - I shall miss it terribly, and without a decent internet connection there's not much chance of me hearing it online.


    Once again, thank you for the music


    Kind Regards - and sorry for writing in English

      Hi Theo


      Thank you, as always

  6. DJ on last title is Paul Gambaccini. The programme aired on 2 November 1974
  7. Thanks for this - the guest is Tony Blackburn on his final Radio One appearance
  8. Thank you for another interesting recording - Johnny Moran was mostly heard on Scene & Heard but deserved more airtime. I have re-tagged my copy as 19730407 (Saturday 7 April 1973). Johnny mentions that the show preceding is The Rolling Stones Story, which was always broadcast on Saturday. In the news, there is a report about an International Peacekeeping helicopter being shot down in Vietnam, as reported on 8 April 1973 in The New York Times https://www.nytimes.com/1973/04/08/archives/peace-agency-helicopter-believed-down-in-vietnam-report-disputed.html and a death from smallpox in Harrow, which was mentioned in the UK Parliament official record Hansard on 12 April https://api.parliament.uk/historic-hansard/written-answers/1973/apr/12/smallpox . Also, some of the tracks are 1973 releases. 7 April 1973 Radio One schedule can be viewed here https://forums.doyouremember.co.uk/archive/index.php/t-20521-p-10.html
  9. Hi Vincent I thought you had uncovered a rare Kenny Everett treasure - but it's just two shows that someone has annoyingly joined together. The first 47 minutes are from Saturday 4 July 1970, which I have as a separate recording 'cleaned by Oldies 45'. The rest of the recording is of Kenny Everett on Desert Island Discs on BBC Radio Four. Presented by Sue Lawley, it was first broadcast on October 24, 1993. The recording you have is slightly truncated (38m against the original of more than 40 minutes). It is, however, available in full with studio quality here https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0093wpf
  10. DLT is 3 October 1970 (Nixon in Ireland, opening of BBC Radio London are mentioned, providing clues)
  11. To clarify what this recording is, here's what it says about it at the BBC's Genome site 9.00: Sounds of the 60s Christmas Special A few weeks ago listeners were invited to vote for their favourite record from the 60s. Today Simon Dee reveals the results of that poll as he plays the Sounds of the 60s listeners' Top 20. Tune in and find out how hip you are! Producer STUART HOBDAY BBC Bristol Contributors DJ: Simon Dee Producer: Stuart Hobday
  12. Thanks for this Metadata shows it was broadcast 10 April 1977 (19771004)
  13. Seems to be 3 November 1968 https://peel.fandom.com/wiki/03_November_1968
