More surprises from Les. I didnt know you were on Deeside Community Radio! How many stations have you actually been on then? I know obviously about SCR Storeton Community Radio. I now know of Deeside Community Radio and I remember you talking in an email previously about a Radio Annabelle. Any others? :?:

cheers,
Gary

p.s. Coincidentally I also ran a very small time pirate radio op in 1983/84 called Radio Annabelle, a different one than yours obviously, I've mentioned it on my profile on the MAR web site ;)

Hi all
Was around when Julie/Merseywaves were on. I can remember Dave Collins with J'taime and yellow polka dot bikini. Sorry for spelling mistakes, English was never my good subject.
I am racking my brains as to the music used when a raid was about to happen, any ideas well for Merseywaves anyway?

Hi Steve. Really nice that you've joined the Merseypirates forum :)

Dave Collins is still around on The Scene 102.2 FM. I haven't heard him or The Scene for a while, but he's still on occasionally or so I can gather. I last heard him during the last Christmas holiday.
As regards the Radio Merseywaves music used when a raid was about to happen, I don't know, but I'll ask Bert Williams the next time we speak. If he remembers I'll update it here 8-)

Just getting back to one of the songs mentioned earlier in this thread; Phil Boardman's fabulous single called "Much Missed Man" I'm now glad to say that myself and thepostieles now both have an mp3 copy of this song. So thanks very much to the forum's newest member diddydaddydoddy for sending in the mp3 to us via email. Apparently diddydaddydoddy is in regular contact with the artist, Phil Boardman!!!! Wonderful stuff indeed! :D

Many thanks Gentlemen.

Yes I know Phil Boardman very well, here's a little explanation as to how I got hold of the MP3 of Much Missed Man...

Phil and I have known each other for over a decade now and as you can imagine there has been a lot of mickey-taking between us. He casually told me that he'd had a singing career and cut this single. He wouldn't let me hear the song but would occasionally tease me by bringing in the sleeve or by playing a few notes if a keyboard was around. This went on for years. So in a desperate attempt to readdress this I tracked an mp3 down from a guy in Russia. This guy has a series of Beatles/John Lennon songs I believe under the banner of Flabby Road Records (or similar). I had great pleasure in teasing Phil for a period of time thereafter and accidently passed it onto everyone in the office and put it onto a website too!!
PAYBACK :D
