The Capital Countdown with Peter Young: 29/1/77by Simon Luckin
Gladys Knight & The Pips, Heatwave, Thin Lizzy, Thelma Houston, The Rubettes and more.
PY was a total legend on the soul scene .I have loads of soul cellar shows recorded on to mini disc but sadly I edited out all of PY’s patter.
Haven't heard Taxi (Deaf School) in yonks!
Is that Kit Hain (Marshall Hain) singing on the England's Summer Days advert?
Marvellous, thanks for the upload. I have started putting PY Jazz FM shows from the last few years, here: https://www.mixcloud.com/beward90/uploads/ Shall I transfer them to your area?
Sounds like Peter Powell (still at Luxy at the time) with the ad for Blue Jeans magazine at 27.20
Yes, definitely Peter Powell. No question about it. I remember listening to him on Luxy.....
Hello Simon, thanks for the tip, I have uploaded a show from November 2012 which I hope has worked.
Hi Derek. Yes, it looks as though there are two shows uploaded which I'm really looking forward to listening to. Well done and thanks so much in advance.
Simon, I have a lot of PY’s from 2007 onwards, how can I upload these. Such terrible news to hear he has gone off the airwaves for ever.
It's quite simple to do Derek. Sign up to Mixcloud and create your own account (which is free to do) then simply upload shows as and when you wish. It would be great to hear your recordings so I will keep an eye out for them. As you say, such terribly sad news today.
Will be so sadly missed.. A true UK radio legend. RIP!
Incredibly sad news to wake up to. As you say, a true legend.
