Purbeck Coast Radio
Jeremy Hoare presents a show all about the TV Show of that name.
Produced by the dynamic 27 year old Jack Good, it made stars of Cliff Richard, Marty Wilde, Billy Fury, The Verrnons Girls, The Dallas Boys and many more, and the Lord Rockingham’s XI band had a Number 1 hit with ‘Hoots Mon!’
This 1958 Rock N Roll show was the first on British television, live on Saturdays from ATV Hackney Empire Studio and I was a teenage Call Boy (Runner) on it!
For every one of the shows, three women, director Rita Gillespie, production assistant Diana Bramwell and vision mixer Tanya Cooke ran the shows from the Control Room under the Circle.
