Here's an amazing photo of UB40 playing on stage at a Radio Hallam Roadshow. UB40 went on to become a MASSIVE top 10 band!

Radio Hallam outside broadcast set up on the Moor outside Debenhams Department Store

So in essence, can ANYONE who worked at Hallam in 1974 particularly, get in touch with me, as I am seeking historical info that cannot be found anywhere else. Most of this relates to the layout of the

I used to work at Radio Hallam and am building an archive for ex-staff and other interested people. I am looking for old audio/pictures etc. Please PM me with anything you may be able to contribute.

In the meantime - here is a memory for you........

History dude

Does anyone have or know of any written records of the top 40 show on Hallam? I have a keen interest in music charts and these and other Independent Local Radio charts are mostly lost to posterity. Which is a waste. Even a hand written note done at the time or copied note of a taped recording would be appreciated.

Yes you are correct, won loads of prizes but they were rubbish

I won a good one in 1977.

Steve Marriott's "Small Faces Revival" at The City Hall

They announced that there would be a question about the Small Faces at the end of the next record. First person to phone with the correct answer got 2 tickets.

I was so confident that I would know the answer, I dialed the number, all but the last digit, and waited for the question.

Halfway through the question I added the last number and was (presumably) the first call they got.

This is a link to a message sent by Rick Wakeman for the 40th Radio Hallam Anniversary party which had an amazing number of ex-staffers from the "Hartshead Days". Some ex-staff/presenters who had not been heard of for years turned up including Johnnie Moran and Kelly Temple. WIll post some pictures in due course.... I'm still looking for audio/video/scans etc. so please PM me if you can help.

Here are some pictures from the Radio Hallam 40th that took place on Friday 3rd October.

Nearly everyone who worked at "Hartshead" and is still alive was there - Fantastic turnout

and great to meet so many old colleagues.

Don't remember it (there's a surprise) but in 1977 got married and went to work at RM. Would have enjoyed it though as people don't seem to realise what an influence Stevie Marriott was, and what energy on stage. Radio Hallam seemed to play lots of his music.

History dude

Brilliant pictures Michael. Any more?

Great shot of Keith and Kelly.

Kelly's voice still rings in my ears with his top 40 voice. "ten minutes after two".

Does Keith still tell the tale of the Zebra crossing?

Does anyone know the brand and model details of the main broadcast turntables used by Hallam in the late 70's? I know it started with Gates units with Gray research tonearm in 74 but what were the instant fader start decks used later?  Also what tonearm and cart?

Slightly off topic.

I remember when I used to work in town. We quite often went to the Dove and Rainbow at lunch time (circa 1980) Roger Moffat was always in with Ray Stewart and his wife/girlfriend.

Mr Moffat had a walking stick with a bicycle bell on it. I asked him why, he said so he didn't run people down.

Obvious really. Nutter hehe
