Radio 1 vintage (50th anniversary celebrations)
  • It's been embargoed for a little while but now they've officially announced...
    https://www.theguardian.com/media/2017/jun/29/radio-1-at-50-golden-oldies-to-return-for-celebration
    If 'Radio 1 vintage" will see the return of some legendary jocks, what about the jingles? Will they license some of the classic cuts and get JAM to shout "vintage!"?
    I should point out that I work for the BBC but have no connection with this project at all.
  • Its a bit "unfortunate" that a number of the original or subsequent DJs (NOT "presenters"...) are "in the clink"...
    but I hope they can have a lot more significant "names" than "just" Tony B and the "non-proper-Radio One" people.

    As for the jingles - surely the people who dumped JMW in the way they he has indicated they apparently did are
    now "long gone" from the Beeb, and there's certainly some well-known names within the Beeb production arms
    and associated production providers now who "know their jingles" and would be happy to bury the proverbial hatchet?

    Fingers crossed all round :^)

    Can't see Jon having a problem to be fair. It'll be a good advert for JAM and an education for most of their listeners.

    Slightly off topic, I wonder what the Beeb locals are doing on November 8th this year?

    Tony Blackburn
    Alan Freeman

  • I'm surprised top 80's DJs Peter Powell, Adrian John & Steve Wright aren't in that list also :(
    Radio 1 was at it best in 80's, but started going downhill soon after the FM switch on.
    I've only listened mainly to the Top 40 in the 90's until around 1994/95. I've not really listened since then with the exception being 1 or 2 of Radio 1's Birthdays.
  • No sign of my heroes- Adrian Juste and Bruno Brookes, although they are planning to celebrate the Top 40
