RADIO LONDON 266M WITH KEITH SKUES

Here we have a rather interesting CD recorded in February 1967 from the MVGalaxy moored three and a half miles off the coast of Clacton on Sea in Essex and home of Radio London or Big L as it was nicknamed. This is a recording of a Keith Skues Show including Coffee Break where he invites the newsreader Paul Kaye to have a chat about pirate radio going way back to the 1930s. They chat looking at old newspaper adverts and commercials from that era. Apparently pirate radio has been around since the 1930s and in 1936 the first idea of having a radio station on a ship was thought of but never came to light. They celebrate Paul's 33rd Birthday on board and have a good old natter. Includes a couple of Radio London weather reports and mixed with a few Big L jingles . Also snippets from Whistling Jack Smith, Marrianne Faithful, New Vaudaville Band, Beatles, Jim Reeves, Walker Brothers, Hermans Hermits, to name a few. Commercials include Coronet Yoghurt, Duke of Clarence Malmsey, Mac Fisheries, Addis, Bovril, Phensic, and Martini, remember any of them? Keith Skues then plays his famous theme tune Mr Tambourine Man by The Golden Gate Strings and finally hands over to the late great Kenny Everett. All in all a rather unusual CD of pure solid gold nostalgia, one for the avid collector of offshore radio recordings. A real memory jerker especially when you hear the old adverts.
