I’m cruising down the gears in preparation for a brief break over the Festivities.

  4. Following on from Phil’s comment about Radio London, At 6am on 23/12/64 Pete Brady (not the Birdcage DJ) presented the first proper programme on Radio London with his opening record being Cliff Richard’s I Could Easily Fall (In Love With You). The first advert was for The News Of The World. The station was broadcasting on 1133 kilohertz, 264.8 metres (referred to on the air as “266”) with, at that time, a power of 17 kilowatts.
