Starting on Sunday20th Feb 2011 on BBC Radio Devon and Jersery:

Quote:
Shaun Tilley Entertainment is proud to announce that we've been commissioned to produce a weekly programme for the BBC. THE VINTAGE TOP 40 SHOW will be heard on some of the Beeb's local radio stations and features two chart countdowns from this very week in a year gone by. SHAUN TILLEY will be the main host but every few weeks the programme will be presented by one of a hugely impressive list of fellow former national pop radio names including MIKE READ, DAVID HAMILTON, ED STEWART, PAUL BURNETT, ADRIAN JOHN, PAT SHARP and ADRIAN JUSTE. Although hosted in a contemporary style, THE VINTAGE TOP 40 SHOW tips it’s hat to the halcyon days of the chart show by boasting ‘old school’ jingles and production. The first stations to broadcast the programme will be BBC Radio Devon and Radio Jersey, the debut show can be heard on Sunday 20th February 5-7pm.

Shaun Tilley Entertainment... Retirement Home and Employment Agency for Distressed DJs. Well I suppose it must be an expanding, if not very lucrative, business after all the commercial station rationalisations; Graham Dene is the latest recruit.

Tilley is still listed on Reading 107fm' pages, but is no longer doing the show.

Can't imagine that there's much in the BBC Local Radio coffers to pay for it, and I can't quite understand why they would want to commission what is effectively an ersatz POTP and run it against Paul O'Grady on Radio 2. Still, it might be something to listen to on a wet holiday Sunday in the southwest.

As the BBC's local operations appear to be pooling budgets in order to offer programming that is less local and more national in flavour, there seems to be much confusion in the BBC as to the difference between "local", "regional" and "national" programming is these days.

We have programmes with a national appeal being commissioned by groups of local stations, and we have the national station (Radio 2) commissioning presenters who seem capable only of creating programmes that sound like the worst "local radio" programmes of the 80s (eg: Evans, Feltz, etc).

RIP radio as we have known it!

I think it's a great way to bring something to Local Radio. I do miss the old Radio One chart shows. It's a shame shauntilley can't get hold of others like : Bruno Brookes, Mark Goodier, Gary Davis, DLT, Peter Powell, and Simon Bates who have all hosted or covered the old R1 chart show.

You can listen here.

Heard the show (online). Shaun was a bit 'shouty' and the levels didn't sound right to me. His announcements seemed much louder than the tracks he played. Recorded as live or voice tracked I assume.
Although he didn't play every track in the chart he still seemed to fade many of them early.
Perhaps only worth listening to for the old JAM jingles, though hardly a reason to listen every week though.
Shaun on again next week and then Ed Stewart followed by David Hamilton.
