Happy 50th Birthday Radio 1 & 2

The stations were launched on 30th September 1967.

"DJs from BBC Radio 1 and 2 have celebrated the 50th anniversary of the launch of the two stations with a joint broadcast.

Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw and Radio 2's Tony Blackburn hosted the special 90-minute joint show, which featured music from the last 50 years.

Ex-breakfast show hosts Sara Cox, Simon Mayo and Mike Read were special guests.

Radio 1 has launched a "pop-up" vintage station to feature 50 one-hour themed shows over the next three days.

It will feature archive material from DJs across its history."

Bet they'll miss out the odd decade.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

BBC Radio was a nest of perverts and arseholes. I see nothing to celebrate here.

Really, what a load of ... Do you know how many presenters there are/have been on these two stations? Not all of them were perverts and arseholes, most are decent people doing their job to bring us some entertainment. That's worth celebrating imho.

Not all of them were perverts and arseholes, but they were quite happy to work alongside the perverts and arseholes and say nothing about it.

Amounts to pretty much the same thing in my book.

Aye, they should have kept them offshore on boats and imprisoned in Luxembourg...

Re: Happy 50th Birthday Radio 1 & 2

I was working on the Suffolk coast during the lives of Radio Caroline and Radio London, they were exciting times. Those guys on the pirate radio ships were certainly the trail blazers. Without the pirate's success, the BBC would not have budged. The government tried lots of tricks to shut them down, making it illegal to support them, but they then supplied the ships from Holland. In the end Caroline sank in a storm off the coast at Frinton-on-sea, near Harwich, Caroline still survives on Internet radio.
