Re: Radio Daze

I lived real close to my local BBC radio station... literally across the road - the large building behind the pub:

Re: Radio Daze

In terms of radio- it had changed and specialised shows, in particular evening times... based themselves on rock, reggae, jazz, etc...
This like many other rock bands filtered into the mainstream :

Re: Radio Daze

This guy knew the word 'reinvention' - born Bernard Jewry and had big hits in the 60s under the name Shane Fenton (check out Cindy's Birthday!!), then in the early 70s re-thunk and went glam.
The black gloves came about as he was booked to appear on TOTP show as this new alias- his hair was grey so he dyed it jet black, but the colourant was all over his hands... modesty and ego prevailed, leather gloves, and a dress ring - Alvin Stardust was born!

Re: Radio Daze

This was everyplace in '74 and no doubt was inspired by the interest of Bruce Lee and Cain.
He was a black belt and beyond apparently -

Re: Radio Daze

1975, our city got a commercial station in the form of Radio Trent...
Little did I realise this was Traffic's drummer.

Re: Radio Daze

So much was the American vibe, via Boston and Chicago etc.. I thought these were a US rock band.. turned out they were from England's West Midlands.

Re: Radio Daze

Maybe this merits the Hit & Miss thread, but I won this 45rpm on a local station.

Re: Radio Daze

'bout this time- I'd gotten into Rock N Roll and visited a pub called The Cocked Hat... rougher than a badgers ass but great Rock N Roll. Saturday morning was between 10 and 12 was, a gem of a radio show called JC's Jukebox,
a few memories from that show, circa '76.

Re: Radio Daze

It was 75p to get into these gigs, the pianist had a glass eye and used to bounce it on the floor and pop it back in to the beat!
These were the guys, sadly Cavan Grogan passed in 2020.

Re: Radio Daze

Things started to hot up, the hippies got a shock- all ears hung on every word of the lamented John Peel, Punk was out and it seemed everyone (and label) wanted a slice of this one chord wonder, on nightly Rock shows- this:

Re: Radio Daze

Against an aural backdrop of disco, funk, punk, pop, soul and reggae radio flourished, as the TV and Middle agers thought the Sex Pistols as the new destroyers!
