Isle of Wight Radio by Airforce
  • jonnojonno February 5
    I've been listening to the Airforce jingle demo CD in the car to and from work this week and it prompted me to see if I could find a copy of the Isle of Wight Radio launch package that was featured on that CD.

    YouTube came up with this nice find

    Great find Jonno; “It’s A Kind Of Magic” was one of the better packages Airforce produced in the early 1990s; I believe this package was composed by Roger Dexter, who later went on to Vibe Music Imaging/Music 4 to produce packages with Sandy Beech.

    Yorkshire Coast Radio had several cuts from this package re-sung in 1993 for the launch of the station. They also had top-ups produced in 1994 to tie-in with switch-on of the Whitby 103.1 FM frequency:

    The “It’s A Kind Of Magic“ top of hour cut is one of my favourites and was also used by Yorkshire Coast Radio and Wessex FM:

    I would love to get my hands on copies of the Essex Radio packages Airforce produced, and even more so, the re-sings Wessex FM had of the Essex “Greatest Memories, Latest Hits” cuts:

    Unfortunately, all things Airforce seem to be very hard to get hold off, mainly because I don’t think they are very proud of this early work (which is a real big shame)! :(

    Who is the VO on the TOH/News ins?

    Pretty sure he's the same as used on Southern Sound back in the day.

    It's Michael Jayston.

    He also did the Capital News intro in the late 80's as well..
