Thameside Radio Revisited

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

Sep 20, 2020

The end of the Paul James show. The Intrepid Birdman takes over. Dave plays a demo tape from a band called Kite. Sent in on reel to reel!

He also plays a tape from Radio Centraal - a Dutch pirate - saying "hello" to Thameside. More about them on .

Soem technical info:

There is another transmitter change. The beginning of his show came from the blocks by Edgware Road (overlooking Paddington police station), the second part from the blocks in Bentford (as featured in People Just Do Nothing - a BBC TV mockumentary sitcom 2014 - 2018, the film is now in production).

The broadcast ends when there there should be is another tape and transmitter change but instead it goes off air when it should have switched to a Petts Hill.

While Thameside were monitoring the Home Office radio channel there was a battery fault with one of the handheld radios that Thameside were using to relay information. As a result Bob Edwards and Dave Birdman were caught and subsequently taken to court.
