MAIL ARTICLE

In the 19 years since we started the show we had three articles in the local paper. Two were arranged by John Shorten to introduce the show to the local market. I can't remember why this one was done. The one thing I do remember about this article was that Simon was supposed to turn up for the photo shoot and he arrived late which was quite a common occurrence at that time. I'm sure he must be much better these days.

 I can't remember much about how this story came about but it probably had something to do with Andrew. This was a great scoop for us it was a near on full page article in the Sunday Sun which gave us hundreds of new listeners.

We were moved several times in our career by different programming panels in the myriad of management changes at 3WRB as it was known then. I think this move was because the Station at the time was predominantly filled with Country and Western shows. Not many traditional country shows but lots of big hat twangy guitar country artists featured. The panel wanted Wednesday nights to be all country so we were moved to thursday. At that time following each show most of us would hang around for beers and have very late nights so moving us one day closer to the weekend was better. However we put in a protest to management as we had got quite a lot of publicity for the Wednesday night slot at that time and changing it may have jeopardized our listening audience. Management disagreed and we moved nights.

The day this song was released I was working at Collins Olympic in Tottenham.

Simon Smith was working casual there at the time (Very Casual believe me). Steve Kernohan came by in his car and Simon and I went and sat in his car to hear the single played for the first time on radio.

It was an amazing experience. I had been a teenager the last time I heard a Beatles track played on it's day of release. I loved the song immediately and still love it now.

I think Real Love really had a better chance of selling to the public than Free As A Bird. The Hype was over after the release of the first single and a lot of people dropped off the radar when this single came out.

Well didn't we love this on the show. So many listeners say to me they love it when we talk about this guy and the story of the Lost Mal Evans Collection. The thing about this was that no one in the world but these guys had heard of the Lost Mal Evans Collection.
