THE FIRST 5 YEAR'S OF CAPITAL RADIO 194 - 16th OCT 1973

Its Tuesday  16th October 1973  its 5am, and for the very first time legal commercial radio in the UK began with the start of Capital Radio in central London. Sir Richard Attenborough opens up the station with one of the longest versions of the National Anthem Ive ever heard !!!!!! This CD celebrates the very first 5 years of Capital and documents its achievements over that period. Listen to a brief history of how Capital Radio came about, which starts off with the stories of the offshore radio stations  like Radio Caroline and Radio London of the 60s and 70s. By 1970 the Government of the day were convinced of the value of commercial land based radio. They gave the go-ahead for the first few British commercial stations and Capital Radio was the very first to go on the air. David Simonds opens up the station with The Breakfast Show. Kenny Everett and Dave Cash hosted the breakfast show soon after the station launched. They worked together previously on Radio London "Big L " and their double act became a huge hit with the listeners. Hear comments from Joan Shenton and the late Tommy Vance about the early days of the station. Listen to the general public being interviewed about what they think the station should be like, one brilliant comment was "radio is not a jukebox"!!!!  Did you know Capital nearly closed down due to lack of revenue from advertisers!! Capital Swap Shop is on here along with various jingles and amusing stories of the early days. DJs include the late Kenny Everett, the late Tommy Vance, Michael Aspel, Gerald Harper, Roger Scott, Kid Jenson, Joan Shenton, David Simonds, and Dave Cash. A brilliant good quality CD telling the real story about Capital Radios first five years. The memories just come flooding back!!! A real memory jerker
