memo from Mrs. Calvert

Tony Carroll rescue
In 1965, a disc-jockey called Tony Carroll had to be air-lifted off the Radio City fort with acute appendicitis. Cutting from an unknown newspaper.

City boss Reg Calvert was always coming up with new ideas. This is one of his more bizarre schemes: an offshore station based on a submarine!

Beauty queen Linda Bass was signed up to become a Radio City DJ. She used her mother's maiden name on air, Peggy Knight.

Another of Reg's grand plans: for a pirate television station. As reported in an American paper.
script for Basildon Request Show

letter from Paul Elvey
A 1965 letter to a listener from disc-jockey / engineer Paul Elvey.
