Random Radio Jottings is one year old today.
The blog has its genesis in the Digital Spy Radio Forum. A poster asked whether anyone recalled a Radio 2 weekday music show from the mid-80s called Music All the Way. I not only remembered the programme but had a copy of it too so I posted it online for people to listen to. This gave me the idea – why not post more old programmes that I’d recorded over the years and share my archive. But rather than just upload them I’d write about the programmes, providing context, history, production details and so on. So I started Random Radio Jottings.
Over the intervening year I’ve been encouraged by the positive comments, feedback and audio clips that I’ve received from like-minded enthusiasts and bloggers as well as from those in the radio profession. A big thank you to everyone.
So here is that recording of Music All Way as broadcast on 11 February 1986. The announcer is Tim Gudgin.
