Nick Prince… Tony Prince and Emperor Rosko are in Ibiza in a modern day M.C. competion and intend to show the hand waving DJ’s of today how to get a crowd going…. Should be fun. 1970’s maybe and the fact that both hosted Radio Luxembourg Roadshows on the Pier and Rosko did a Radio One Roadshow here in 1976, I think?
Peter Fairless… Friday, 9th July 1976, Nick, Rosko Roadshow in the Ballroom…
Nick Prince… I’m sure someone on this page found Emperor Rosko did the 1975 Radio One Roadshow here and I claimed Tony Blackburn did the 1976 one here with Our Kid as guests. I’ll find the cutting of Tony Blackburn and Our Kid at some point, whereever it was I saw them…. Could only be here or Eastbourne. My knowledge of Radio One/Luxembourg Road shows isn’t as good as some of my subjects.
Peter Fairless… I think it was Alan Freeman one year…
Chris Giles… I was on the Alan freeman road show or was it Pete Murray not sure bit disappointing though did the bit and pieces game on it..didn’t win …Trouble was, I took the day off work to go and then everyone heard me on the radio.. Got a lovely bag of bits and bobs though and a Radio 1 roadshow sticker that I still have on my guitar case.
Nick Prince… That is so funny. No chance of your workmates catching you out on a Radio One Roadshow now? Unless they are under 11. I think that is the average age of their audience these days.
Chris Giles… The best radio 1 show was in The leas Cliff Hall at Folkestone …we were visiting Folkestone that day as a family… So we all went in mum and dad and Shep the Dog as well… And saw David Bowie singing Space Oddity… Of course we didn’t know much about him then…but it’s one of those memorable days you never forget.
Nick Prince… My most memorable moment from a Radio One Roadshow was Eastbourne (c1983). Tony Blackburn again. In a silver outfit jumping on stage and doing some sort of robotix/brakedancing routine. Very memorable but again I escaped this mentally unscathethed. (Did you go to that one Jez Clark?)
Tony Davis… Think the year was 1973 that the Radio One Roadshow came to the Aquarius in George Street. My mate John Baker was the house DJ and was supposed to be on the panel reviewing new releases. At the time he was in hospital and couldn’t do it so I stepped in. The only record I can remember we reviewed was Geordie’s Get Back Black Cat. I remember though that it was Emperor Rosko who was the Radio One DJ there.
Jo Weavill… My memory of David Bowie singing Space Oddity at Folkstone Radio One Roadshow was unbelievable. A day out with grandparents and stumbled into this fantastic moment aged 15. The hall as I remember it wasn’t full at all. Wonderful wonderful memory.
