Not all recorded Robbie radio soul shows can be exactly dated. I have to rely on cassette tapes often buried away with general rubbish and dates illegible on the information label.
This one has been authenticated as a BBC Radio London Saturday lunchtime show December 17th 1983. If you were in Saudi Arabia, at sea with the Royal Navy, stationed in the Falklands or working in the North Sea at the time you could well feature on one of the many dedications. A musical flavour of the year on a recording that as usual is warts and all and yes we do fall off the end of the cassette. As Billy Griffin sings Serious!
