Radio London 1983

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!

    The last track that falls off at the end of the recording is ‘It’s Time For Love’ by Pieces Of A Dream from the 1983 album ‘Imagine This’.
