To celebrate 40 years of Radio One they are Live Streaming the shows today. Just been watching Tony Blackburn the first voice heard on Radio One with Moyles at the desk.

Is anyone else dipping in and out today? Your memories are welcome?

A bit more adventurous than R2, they have a preview clip of smashy & nicey's show. It must be pre-recorded Shocked

Lets see if they get a webstream for R2, and we'll see if Wrighty, his posse and guests are really in the studio Laughing

I suppose Radio One was really the first station for the BBC with the big names on there, as Radio 2 was called the Light programme'? Most shows will be pre -recorded for Radio 2 today, so Listen Again this week and watch and listen live to Radio 1. ( At the time nations favourite not arf .. pop plastic, pop pickers )

Eh? Which DJ's were big names on 30 Sept 1967? The ones from the Light Programme and also on Radio 2. Rolling Eyes

C'mon Mark, wake up, Jack Jackson, Leslie Crowther etc were the big names on R1 AND R2. Tony Blackburn etc were NOT yet big names.

Eh? Radio 2 was Radio 2.

Maybe you should read our timeline..... I've added the first day schedule that you found for us last week, and also added some info from Ed Stewart today, about his first show which wasn't Junior Choice (Crowther did it originally).

Paul Hollingdale is a lot less posh these days! Its amazing how some presenters accents have developed over the years.

Funny you should say that Ernie.

I was listening to very old JW recording from his R1 days last week and the first thing that struck me was that he sounded a bit posh if you can believe that!

If you listen to the early days of Wogan & Bruce they sounded different. Their voices sound more hunky now if you know what I mean?

Nice to hear Ed Stewart back on radio 2 on Sunday.

Loved today's Jnr Choice show brought back lots of memories. Heard lots of songs that I hadn't heard for years.

The hour flew by.

Does that prove it's live ? Wink
They could be playing anything and you wouldn't know unless it was you who had a request played.

I think he was live. Aspel was as well. The rest was obviously recorded. But what a great way to wake up for a change. Can Paul Hollingdale do the 9am show every Sunday?

Kenny was the best thing all day. The show sounded like it could have been recorded last week rather than 26 years ago.

The only one today that really let me down was Pick Of The Pops. 'Smashie & Nicey' just didn't work for me. If there weren't any of 'Fluff' Freeman's POTP shows in the archives, then, perhaps they should have drafted in Tom Browne who used to present the chart run down in the 1970s.

Vernon Kay had all the breakfast show presenters from the past which he pre-recorded for the show on Sunday. He didn't have Chris Evans on. Zoe Ball presented a live show with Sara Cox.

I was listening to Moyles alongside Tony Blackburn. In those days they got more listeners. Moyles mentioned that he did get a Taxi in paid by the BBC as it's certain time of the morning, but he doesn't get one home.

Rock of ages as Radio 1 celebrates its fortieth


Owen Gibson, media correspondent
Saturday September 29, 2007
The Guardian

As Radio 1 slips noisily into middle age, its controller has predicted it will continue to thrive in an age of iPod playlists, online music services and other options open to its audience.

Forty years after Tony Blackburn slipped the needle on to Flowers in the Rain by the Move and welcomed listeners to "the exciting new sound of Radio 1", he will return tomorrow to accompany Chris Moyles. Others returning for the anniversary include Mark Goodier, Bruno Brookes and Zoe Ball. Moyles, the larger than life breakfast DJ whose claim to be the "saviour of Radio 1" has become a self-fulfilling prophecy, is one of those who has helped the station balance its mission to entertain a mass audience with the need to champion new music.

Andy Parfitt, the controller credited with reconnecting Radio 1 with its core 15-24 audience while reversing sliding listening figures and establishing a credible public service ethos, said creating "talismanic" DJs to discover new talent was more crucial than ever.

Radio 1 endured a crisis in the mid-1990s when the then controller, Matthew Bannister, purged popular but ageing DJs such as Simon Bates and Dave Lee Travis amid much rancour. As listening figures which once regularly topped 20m slumped, the station came under pressure to redefine its role.

Essential Selection DJ Pete Tong described it as Radio 1's "acid house or punk rock moment", leading it to concentrate on its young audience and shed older listeners: "Radio 1 was a dirty word." Parfitt, who took over in 1998, has been credited with reconfiguring Radio 1 for the digital era. Ratings, which had slipped to 9.6m, have risen back above the psychological 10m barrier.

Tong, who was there during the early days of the reinvention, said there was now a "natural link" between the daytime DJs such as Moyles and Scott Mills, "crossover" DJs such as Alex Zane and specialist evening DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Tim Westwood and himself.

Tong described his role as "part navigator, part Pied Piper". He said: "When I started in 1991, I had the records and you didn't, so you had to listen to me. Now, everyone's got access to everything, it's my job to find you the 20 best ones."

Parfitt described Radio 1 as being "more comfortable in its skin" than at any time in the last 15 years: "We aren't afraid of being entertaining and warm."

Outside Radio 1, the corporation struggles to connect with a young audience. This week it unveiled BBC Switch, a new "multiplatform offering for teenagers". It will include a slot on BBC2, shows on Radio 1, an online portal and live events.

I heard that too but I'm sure he said a silver Mercedes picks him up? maybe it's a posh taxi.
I don't think it's really necessary though, just another waste of money.
First time I've listened to Radio 1 for 15 years or more. I liked Blackburn but wasn't impressed with Moyles. ( no surprise there then.. Laughing )
