Les Ross on BRMB
Audio clips from an era in commercial radio when presenters were
just that, they talked to their listeners, not merely a DJ having
to get in a quota of computer chosen music, an era when
presenters were allowed to speak for more than 30 seconds
of the audio clips are from Les' Sunday programme which if
memory serves me correctly was originally on from 10 am 'til 2 pm.
In those early days when Les did his Sunday programme in the first
two hours he used to invite friends and relations who were visiting
people in the Birmingham area to 'phone in' and have a chat, then,
in the latter 2 hours Les presented 'Around the World' where he
would phone up people anywhere abroad.
I think some of my audio clips originated from as early as 1976,
unfortunately I didn't date the recordings I made at the that time.
So click on a link below, sit back and enjoy commercial radio at its
best, talking to and listening to its listeners! (well some of the music
might be just that bit dodgy?).
