More from Thameside's Easter broadcast. This recording is the next one in the series but comes from the Radio Eric archive. The box that this recording should have been in actually had a Radio Floss tape. Talking about the other pirates - I do have some recordings of Thameside spin-offs such as Clockwork Wireless and Hilltop Rado. Anyone like to hear those?
Unusually for a Thameside show Paul James gives us football results, weather news and travel updates. All very local radio. I do wonder if Thameside could have gone on to become something like Radio Jackie FM which is the local station for south west London.
Mark is in the studio while we wait for Bob and building up for his show later that day. There is lots more about the picnic.
Bob takes over about 12:30.
Bob chats with Dave who tell us that Ian has taken over the engineering from 10-1 Teddy who was thrown off the roof of Thameside Towers. Were also told that the first 5 Intrepid Birdman Appreciation Society Members that come to the Thameside picnic will receive a signed copy of the Intrepid Birdman. I still have my membership card somewhere...
By the end of the recording most of the crew have left to get to the picnic.
Mentions for Matt, Sophie, Martin, Lisa, Andy, Lynne, Sam and Peter from Peter in Harrow; Annette for Karen; Andrew Du Pre for Nervous System, Winston Smith and Skinny; Paul in Clapham for Melanie and her fiancee;
