Documentary of Radio City's First Birthday
Sherie is a big Rob Jones fan, but she does not come from Liverpool and discovered Rob for herself when he left City and moved to Radio Luxembourg. She has remained in touch with him over the years. Even so, it is a miracle that she has this wonderful recording of City's early history. As Dave Eastwood's number one fan, I was overjoyed to discover she has some fabulous recordings of Dave and Rob clowning around on air at Luxy in the early 1980s. Oh, and I mustn't forget the A and B sides of Rob Jones' only foray into the music business - the single Crazy Love, which was mentioned in my book. I have never heard it before, so this was really... er...um.... interesting!
Despite the fact that Sherie didn't really listen to City (although she knew both Rob and Dave from Luxembourg and also listened to Dave when he worked at Essex Radio during his final years) she and I share a common radio bond. She understands exactly the power radio has to touch lives as no other medium can. No wonder we can chat for ages on the phone like old friends, despite the fact we've never met!
So once again, thank you very much Sherie!
