Around the Coast

It’s forty years ago today that the first Radio 1 Roadshow trundled off round the coast of Britain, offering a chance to see your favourite DJs and bands you may just have heard of. And for radio anoraks like me an opportunity to poke around the back of the trucks and see how the show was put on-air.

Here’s part of a show from Skegness in the summer of 1990 with DJ Phillip Schofield recovering from the Noel Edmonds Gotcha escapades in Cleethorpes the previous day. As usual with these events one suspects the crowd in Skeggy got more enjoyment out of it than the radio audience.

This is the Gotcha footage.
