Re finding records via radio station closures [RC 400]: years ago two old soul pals, Rod Shard and Dave Withers, went to a Manchester radio station – not sure which – and all demos were 50p each. Not only was everything soul-wise there, but I think they left the pop behind! I can remember names like Chapter 5, Lynne Randell, Shane Martin… Another source that was sought-out was the armed forces radio stations in Cyprus, and I think Mick Smith and John Anderson went to Singapore’s British Forces Radio stations. Happy days!
Readers, please do write in about your unlikely bulk treasure troves… especially if there are still some records to be found waiting in there!
