Don't watch much telly apart from the pre-recorded news and what I stream from YouTube and some other sites which will remain nameless  ;) At work  I usually listen to Bay FM who play a real eclectic mix, at home if we're not listening to a CD or liquorice pizza I'm  forced to listen to Magic FM who play lots boring 50's to 70's stuff  :(

Radio:
Pick of the Pops with David Jacobs and later Alan Freeman.
Radio Luxembourg on a beaten up transistor under my pillow.
Radio Caroline.

Telly:
Blue Peter.
Crackerjack.
Thunderbirds.
Captain Scarlett.
Fireball XL5.
Top of the Pops.
Benny Hill Show.
Monty Python.
Dave Allen at Large.

Look no further than

            www.whirligig-tv.co.uk

You'll find them all on there, both old TV and old radio. My favourite? The Jennings radio series , as soon as I hear "The Old Clockmaker," I'm taken back to about 1952-53 and I'm back down Memory Lane. Give it a try. If you can't find what you're looking for on the front page, just go up to the enquiries box up at the top. Happy listening and watching.

Wasn't "Nomad" an authentic gypsy in real life and wasn't his dog, "Mac?"

I think we're going back to about 1950 - 1954 or thereabouts.
