December, so time to get hold of your calendar for next year. Why not buy the Radio 1 calendar with “twelve stunning pictures of all your favourite DJs, in full colour”. OK, so it went out of production sometime in the 80s. But back in 1976 here’s new recruit Kid Jensen advertising the 1977 calendar available for just £1.
This promo is for the 1983 calendar – with thanks to whoever first posted it on Jinglemad. The voiceover here provided by Michael McClain.
With pictures ranging from straight forward portraits to increasingly bizarre situations, the 1981 circus theme is particularly tacky, the calendar was just part of the station merchandising from Radio 1 Offers. Look out for more goodies in the New Year.
