  7. Great stuff, Scotty- thanks. Had to chuckle at the beginning of the first file when Robin Banks warns listeners not to order from RNI Promotions of Clifton Gardens in London. "They're in this racket to make a few extra bob." I wonder who was behind that! Cheers, Shaun
  8. Morning Vincent- I think his one is from exactly a year later. Thus- 19790506 Sun 2315-0015 Radio Caroline- Tony Allan First track ('Humanity' by The Royal Rasses) was released in March '79. Cheers, Shaun
  9. http://www3.zippyshare.com/v/YiWDFADH/file.html "I love it. It's the nearest thing to poetry that I ever got to read on the radio - wonderful cadences" - Charlotte Green, Radio 4 announcer and newsreader is just one of dozens of professional broadcasters who've been transfixed by the strangely elegiac nature of the curt and abbreviated language of the formal statement of weather conditions around our island. For Archive on 4, Charlotte's former colleague, Peter Jefferson presents an elegy to the Shipping Forecast, travelling via the archive through the history and romance of the sea areas that daily make their weather known to seafarers. The sea is calm tonight. The tide is full, the moon lies fair Upon the Straits; - on the French coast the light Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand, Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay. But Matthew Arnold's poem 'Dover Beach' also perfectly encapsulates the spirit in which many Radio 4 listeners embrace the Forecast; gazing into the depths of the night, a seascape of indigo swept by a distant lighthouse beam. So is the Shipping Forecast as much a hymn to our former seafaring island as formal meteorological bulletin, to be shared and enjoyed by landlubbers who've long escaped all contact with the sea and ships....? Peter travels to Exeter where the Forecast is compiled from the Met Office's supercomputer's myriad pieces of data... and talks to sailor and radio-lover Libby Purves, national poet of Wales and composer of an ode to the Forecast, Gillian Clarke and to photographer Mark Power, who shot a stunning sequence of black-and-white images of the sea areas. Producer: Simon Elmes The Combination of sea, night and radio... what more could you want? Cheers, Shaun

  11. A bunch of Radio Invicta recordings for the weekend. As usual, thanks to the original recordists / posters. Some of these are 'scoped, so if anyone has the unedited recordings, a post would be much appreciated. Needcless to say, if there's anything else out there, I'm sure it would be warmly recieved by all here.   Also included are a couple of interesting interviews: an excerpt from Mike Raven's appearance on STOIC (Student Television of Imperial College, London) from 1970, where he gives us his memories of Invicta, and an interview with Paul Peters and Bob Graham from 2012, which offers up a wealth of detail, and a fascinating theory of what happened to the MV David on that cold December day.   19640000 1200 Radio Invicta- The Noon Show, with Bruce Holland (studio tape) http://www3.zippyshare.com/v/upYDGxa5/file.html   19640000 1231 Radio Invicta- Simon Ashley http://www59.zippyshare.com/v/z0OjRT2T/file.html   19640000 1258 Radio Invicta- The Information Desk http://www67.zippyshare.com/v/z5pyWtvP/file.html   19640000 Radio Invicta- A Call for Staff, with Ed Moreno http://www48.zippyshare.com/v/hYsFbjbc/file.html   19640000 Radio Invicta- Apologies To Radio Operators In The 80m Band http://www69.zippyshare.com/v/WtfNY9Ar/file.html   19640700 1155 Radio Invicta- Pot Luck, with Simon Ashley http://www38.zippyshare.com/v/4nrKRNc0/file.html   19641100 Radio Invicta- Advertise On Radio Invicta Ad, with Eddie Gerrold http://www26.zippyshare.com/v/5x3LBdjw/file.html   19641100 Radio Invicta- Advertise On Radio Invicta Spot http://www79.zippyshare.com/v/mpggWPgs/file.html   19641205 Sat 1055-1100 Radio Invicta- Ed Moreno http://www82.zippyshare.com/v/6VenSyHh/file.html   19641217 Thu 1000-1006 Radio Invicta- Ed Moreno Announces The Death of Tom Pepper http://www92.zippyshare.com/v/sSwbSk3h/file.html   19641218 Fri (afternoon) Radio Invicta- Information Desk http://www38.zippyshare.com/v/y9wuFrEv/file.html   19641218 Fri 1000 Radio Invicta- Eddie Jerold & Tony Silver http://www12.zippyshare.com/v/sbZeBOY9/file.html   19641218 Fri 1600 Radio Invicta- The Big Show, with Bruce Holland http://www16.zippyshare.com/v/FWSiyKNH/file.html   19641225 Fri 1250 Radio Invicta- Information Desk, with Eddie Jerrold http://www2.zippyshare.com/v/aIPqx0VQ/file.html   19641225 Fri 1315 Radio Invicta- Lunchbox, with Bob Graham http://www61.zippyshare.com/v/0MP0ybNj/file.html   19650105 Tue 1200 Radio Invicta- The Noon Show, with Bruce Holland http://www34.zippyshare.com/v/m2UnzI5H/file.html   19700100 STOIC (Student Television of Imperial College)- Mike Raven Discusses Radio Invicta, with Andy Finney http://www32.zippyshare.com/v/z5f8mdTG/file.html   20120000 Radio Invicta Memories, with Paul Peters & Bob Graham (Spring 2012) http://www110.zippyshare.com/v/Sh5w5BVL/file.html
  12. Morning Vincent- This is actually Mike Barrington, his first time on air from the Mi Amigo. Great upload, thanks! Shaun
  13. "An audio field-diary investigation into the history of radio enthusiasts and short-wave hobbyists recorded and assembled by David Ellis. Ellis follows the trail of one particular operator who was a teenager in 1957 when he exchanged cards with other hams to acknowledge the reception and sending of transmissions. Music by Richard Kilgour with additional material by Jo Thomas" http://www34.zippyshare.com/v/mB3tniSq/file.html Thought this might go down well. Shaun
  14. Thanks, Henk, this is great. I have my radio and TV anorak on while I watch this! Shaun
  15. East Anglia based press photographer. His work is featured in "Pirate Radio: An Illustrated History," co-written with Keith Skues. Interesting fella.
