DJ departures in the commercial sector can be swift, almost brutal. Listeners to Smooth’s Pat Sharp and Kid Jensen won’t have heard them say goodbye this week. But on Heart East Anglia it was a different story as the duo that have woken up listeners for the last fourteen years, Rob Chandler and Chrissie Jackson, got a full, and at times emotional, send-off.
This is how that final show sounded. (With thanks to David Lloyd).
Rob and Chrissie originally teamed up on Radio Broadland, with Rob on the breakfast show for 27 years in total. Dipping into my Broadland archive (yes I have one thanks to some Broads boating holidays!) here’s Chrissie in the afternoons in 1989 and Rob at breakfast in 1988 and 1989.
And as I’ve dug out the Radio Broadland tapes here are some more clips from 1988 and 1989. The DJs I can identify are Dave Brown, Paul Thompson, Mike Stewart.
