  1. Those photos bring a lot of memories flooding back goldenfleece. It was a lot darker woodwork back in the day. Demis Roussos always seemed to be a popular request too I remember Mike Rouse reading out an appeal for people to join the new hospital radio station at the Northern General Hospital. My friend and I went to a meeting in the big boardroom as mentioned earlier. I had only just left school and getting there across town on the bus was a pain. Spent most of my time at HBS / Norther Radio collecting requests but did get to do at least one request show. We used to break into the Radio 2 feed for a couple of hours to transmit to the wards. A guy called Eric had cobbled together some home made announcments and bits of generic Pepper Tanner jingles. I wish I'd been able to carry on, but i got a job and couldn't juggle the two.
  2. I remember the first night that James H Reeve started. His predecessor was Roger Kirk who had a more gentle approach to phone ins. He loved his First Time Callers or FTC's as they were known and he always knew they were nervous so he was always polite to them. Then James appeared one night out of nowhere. He introduced himself and mentioned his own name as the night went on. I can't remember the name of onne of the callers, but we'll call him "Dave" This is something like how it went................ "This is James H Reeve, you're on the air, Who's calling?" "Hello ROGER, I'm Dave" Roger takes on a sarcastic tone when he says: "Hello............FRED, what do you want to talk about?" "I'm an FTC Roger" "Yes, I think you are" replied James At this point I fell on the floor laughing! ---------- Post added 22-07-2018 at 14:30 ---------- http://hallammemories.co.uk/
  3. Now to be heard on BBC Northampton (via iPlayer) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p004gt20
  4. Roger Moffat The last voice to be heard on the BBC light programme before it became Radio 2 The first man to swear on BBC television Sacked from the BBC for reading out a shipping forcast whilst pretending to be in a boat on the serpentine. His show, "Make way for Music" was a favourite of the Queen Mother And yes, OK, may be not a good move but he was so sick of the way radio stations were mourning the death of Elvis that he said they were having him stuffed and put in reception. A true legend
  5. "The Great Big Sandwich Shop" under the NCP car park? It was a small shop but they used to make very nice sandwiches on enormous breadcakes if you wanted.
  6. I used to like the Warner Bros. store not far from the entrance to Debenhams. ---------- Post added 07-04-2018 at 13:11 ---------- don't forget Meadowhall Radio that used to broadcast on 106.6 FM around Christmas time.
  7. The council is turning over land to Housing Associations to build and manage new houses to let.
  8. Fred Wilson, Hillsborough Corner - Talbot Sunbeam (It's a Fred car!) Look once, look twice Look for the D.C.Cook sign
  9. Fresh yeast is still available to buy at Morrisons. It's sold as 4 cubes each wrapped with foil on a tray wrapped in cling film and you'll find it in the fridge near the ready made pastry. If you ask at the bakery department at either ASDA or Sainsburys they will usually give you some for free. A recommendation for making bread, is to use "Carrs" breadmaker flour. Sainsburys stock it.
  10. "Hey Rock and Roll" by Showaddywaddy on the dodgems in the Fair at the end of Fox Lane, Gleadless
  11. According to: http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/bills/article-1633409/Historic-inflation-calculator-value-money-changed-1900.html £9.50 in 1974 is equivalent to £103.70 today!

  13. 5 bob was a bit before my time, But I do remember the 50p, 3 course businessmen's lunch at The Golden Tiger, in the late 70's. Soup or Fruit Juice Curry or Chop Suey, etc. with Boiled Rice or Chips (fried rice extra) Jam Pie and Custard or Ice Cream. Happy days
  14. I remember the one at Mablethorpe. Didn't his eyes glow red when you shot him?
