Rank #1: 1516: First Eddie Mair LBC show - 2018

Podcast cover
Read more

A few chosen moments from Eddie Mair on his first show in his new home at LBC as he returned to commercial radio - after many diligent BBC years - on 3rd September 2018.  

The worst thing about a new show is hitting the junctions - Eddie clearly was not over worried  about that here though.  More importantly, this was a fresh, re-invigorated Eddie, sounding thoroughly relaxed and, rightly, warmer, than the Eddie the BBC paid for. As ever the beauty of Eddie is what he doesn't say - but you know he's thinking.  This is a great LBC move - and good to hear Iain Dale's professionalism about his move from the show, justifiably repaid in spades.

Rank #9: 1633: First Tony Blackburn BBC appearance - BBC Light Programme - 1967

Podcast cover
Read more
After some educative years on board the pirates, Tony Blackburn returned home just before the pirates faded to join the BBC on the Light Programme, just weeks before it split into Radio 1 and 2. Enjoy here his debut for Auntie in August 1967, with his familiar sig tune, gags and trademark smile - and just a hint of 'new boy'.  It's deliciously of a time and place in radio: 'and a number called...'.  Witness how old and new come together beautifully when Tony enters a very plummy BBC news bulletin, although the reader tries the very best he can to return to Tony's programme with suitable energy.

Rank #11: 1520: First BBC Radio 4 Extra live programme - Jake Yapp

Podcast cover
Read more

As the audiences to digital stations grow, so does the content.  After some live moments on special occasions, BBC Radio 4 Extra went live properly for the first time on Saturday 8th September 2018. Jake Yapp hosted the programme, with superb intervention from Kathy Clugston, more usually heard on continuity announcer or newsreader duties. As can be heard, she rather enjoys herself.

Rank #12: 1497: Jo forgets she's on Gem

Podcast cover
Read more

It's happened to us all.  We move from station to station. And we usually remember where we are. But just maybe on the odd occasion, we mess up.  A station name, frequency or phone number from a former life spurts out your mouth.  Or even your own phone number.  

Jo Russell was on Trent for a lifetime - but a full ten years after leaving  - and having been through Absolute, BRMB and Free en route to her current home at Gem in the East Mids - for some reason the word 'Trent' came out. Maybe it was just because she was back in her home city.  The brain is a funny old thing.

Rank #13: 1668: Tony Blackburn chart show confusion - 1981

Podcast cover
Read more
Most of us have done it at some stage in our career. Aired something that was not destined for so being. In the fortunate examples - such as this  - there are no expletives.  Tony likely kicked himself, though, as a perfect chart opener was not aired on 11th Jan 1981 as he no doubt produced - but an earlier version. In pursuit of excellence - he'd evidently tried it twice. Those sort of things usually make a presenter so annoyed, they mess up everything after. Tony didn't though.

Rank #18: 1660: Banbury Sound, Rugby FM, Touch closes - 2019

Podcast cover
Read more
29th November 2019 saw another tranche of brand changes as the Touch stations, Rugby FM and Banbury Sound closed - ready to become Capital under a brand agreement between Global and the station owners Quidem.

For the industry, it was a move which might have been predicted some years ago. The rationale is well-rehearsed and the evidence for change reasonably solid in a fast-changing world. Powerful radio brands are one of the reasons why UK commercial  radio is in good health with both audiences and revenues. 

"I suppose it is a 'Black Friday' for me..."

Nevertheless, for those who grew up with the stations - and for those who have appeared on them, it is of course a hugely sad moment. Here, enjoy some of the goodbyes from the presenters. Hats off particularly to Kirsty with  her heartfelt farewells - played in split and tailored for each area. Doing it once  is painful enough. Well done Kirsty.

"I've enjoyed nearly every second of it"
"It's been an honour to be in your life"
"Thanks to my family listening in to my last show..."

Hear too the eerie ten seconds of silence before the warm-up for Capital begins and the legal moment of the start of the brand licence kicks in. Under Capital, the stations will originate a joint regional drive show, providing a new opportunity for Ollie and Simon from Touch, and localised informational segments.

107.6 Banbury Sound (Banbury, Brackley & North Oxfordshire)
 107.1 Rugby FM (Rugby)
 96.2 Touch FM (Coventry)
 102 Touch FM (Shakespeare’s County & The Vale)
 107.3 Touch FM (Warwick, Leamington & Kenilworth)
