Radio 1 Vintage Launch 30th September 2017 with Tony Blackburn

Playing tracks by

The Move, Bee Gees, Cliff Richard, The Supremes, Engelbert Humperdinck and more.

50 years EXACTLY after Tony Blackburn launched the fledgling BBC Radio 1 on 30th September 1967 , he recreated that first show, complete with the original PAMS jingles and running order. The show ran (as it did half a century before) 7am-830 on the Saturday morning. The 2017 version coming live from Wogan House , home of Radio 2 (until 8.30am), having started his air shift at 6am (with Sound of the 60s). From 8.30am, Tony scooted round to New Broadcasting House (home of Radio 1 amongst various stations and TV studios) to co-host with (then) Radio 1 breakfast host Nick Grimshaw. This upload features the recreation of that first show and the double header with Nick Grimshaw, which also featured several other Radio 1 breakfast DJs: Sara Cox, Simon Mayo and Mike Read.
