A letter from Radio London

One of the most popular programmes on Radio London was the Sunday morning request show, sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive. It was the only place on this heavily formatted station where the records were chosen by the listeners. To get your favourite tune played, you had to write in, enclose a wrapper from a product made by Colgate-Palmolive and answer a competition question. Each week twelve lucky listeners not only heard their names mentioned on Big L and had their requests played, but they also each received a record token.
The Pirate Radio Hall of Fame was delighted to hear from Mark Reed. He wrote: “I was sorting through some boxes that belonged to my parents and I found the attached letter and signed photo that I thought you might be interested in. Keep up the good work on the site.”
It seems that Mark's brother was a lucky winner. Many thanks to Mark for sharing these gems.
