• (Original) Radio Sussex Recordings.

    Straight from tape - so completely raw and unedited - here is a collection of recordings from the early eighties of BBC Radio Sussex. Featuring (with some repetition) a selection of the jingles used and some other odd bits - Like for instance the appearance of "Gatwick" - a portrayal of an elderly gentleman who would "make the tea" and had a few odd adventures (especially with the Woodstain). There are also random Channel Four ident music bits littered along the way too. Appearing here are Rowland Myers (then Afternoon presenter), John Henty and Piers Bishop (Mornings), Little Bits of Julian Clegg (mid Morning) and an even smaller bit from Jim Ensom. (Saturdays and afternoon cover). I have sat down with a running order for this in the vain hope that I will assemble it in a more coheren...

    'Turn It Up Xmas Party'. Broadcast on BBC Radio Sussex in December 1987 on the show 'Turn It Up'. Recorded at the Pavilion Theatre, Brighton. 0:00 Nobodys Twisting Your Arm 3:25 Don't Be So Hard 5:55 This Boy Can Wait 9:18 A Million Miles 12:47 What Did Your Last Servant Die Of? 15:36 I'm Not Always So Stupid 19:25 Shatner 21:52 My Favourite Dress 25:58 You Should Always Keep In Touch...(Encore) 28:51 It's Not Unusual (Encore) Probably the last ever thing I taped off the radio in this era, not sure why I stopped. Sound quality not as good as the Radio One broadcasts but still very good. Chaotic performance probably due to stage invasions. I missed the first song of the broadcast.

They might have happened earlier still in the month, but tonight is the first time I noticed.

Hope you enjoy it's "Randomness". I liked Radio Sussex in this incarnation. It was friendly, the people were lovely and approachable! They played music! OK - I know they do again now - but there were some very strange thinking going on when the powers that be made the station "All Talk" later on, but that's another story. Levels aren't brilliant either - but it is a nigh on thirty year old tape!

I recorded this at 1915 GMT meaning it was already dark outside, hence the co-channel interference. The transmitters are at Southwick on 1485kHz (West Sussex) and Bexhill on 1161kHz (East Sussex.) Both transmitters are reputed to radiate 1kW. I'm virtually certain that the announcer is Neil Pringle.
