Friday night 11.50 and I’m fast asleep when Louise calls. "Are you watching More 4?" Very confused and mumbling a lot into the phone, now. "You’re on TV!" I stumble down stairs to catch only the last few minutes of The Tube from 16 March 1983.
The 30 minuter was based around my Radio Programme on Downtown at the time – a very different radio station to the present one. On the night of transmission, Barry McIlheney, Ross Graham, my mate Maurice and I drove to Newcastle to watch the show. But I haven’t seen the programme for years – I think I lent the tape to McIlenney.
So sadly I missed all but a few minutes of the programme.
Did anyone record it???
