Thameside Radio Revisited

Thameside Radio Revisited

Thameside Radio 90.2 VHF on - Archive recordings from London's Thameside Radio

Feb 7, 2016

This is the second half of the Thameside Radio 90.2 Easter Sunday broadcast starting at 10pm.

We're reminded that the pubs close at 11pm. Remember those days?.

Bob Edwards makes it into the studio and tells us he has been out with the transmitter guys.

Really Saying Something by Bananarama and The Fun Boy Three is a new release. We get the 12" version.

Later in the show Dave tells us about CB radio which has only been a "thing" for a few months  - Bob gets a CB radio and has a chat with a number of breakers on Channel 31 live on air.

We also hear a bit about CB 82 show in Wembley which also had a pirate radio stand.

There are still technical problems in the broadcast - interference from TV transmitters. And the transmitter is switching itself off during quiet moments in songs. The technical problems seem to get better about 11:30pm (an hour and a half in to the show)

Mentions include: CBers Orange Club, Action Man, Dopey,  Black Jack, Batman, Weazel and Photon

Also: Rupe from Barnes for Trisha and Josh, Dec and Prudence, Miker of Chalfont, Brian of Amersham for Denise, Chris and Sarah of Kew, Les Keely, Dave Booth for Mazzie & Andy, Anthony for Lyomie, Lynne, Kevin Tom and Catherine, CBers, John in Finchley, Elaine in LA, Annette for Karen, Gilllian and Buzz, Tigermoth, Dominic from Strange Pursuasion.
