This is the BBC light program, and now it's time for.......................
on 12 September 2016
For those of you that remember valve radio and tv sets, the ones that went wrong when the valves quit and daddy had to buy a new one for 30 shillings and shove it inside the set until the next one went, well this comes from that happy time, a lot is from archive recordings and don't have that crystal clear sound that digital has now, they are the best that can be found from the BBC's stock. the tracks are from the 1930's up until the 70's and cover a whole range of programs that for some are almost forgotten and like the voice of Dorthy Oxenford asking if you are sitting comfortably feels strange as if the last fifty years plus have simply melted away. with this music you expect the sonorous voice to follow telling you to tune in later to hear uncle Fred's request from outer Mongolia in two way family favourites. Broadcasting felt a lot more intimate back then as if they were talking to you personally, today with multi channel digital networks spanning the globe it all seems a bit twee, but I feel we have gained a new perspective on the world, but lost that warm fuzzy/cozy feeling you used to get whilst listening on a cold winters day in front of the coal fire.
Buy this set and turn the lights down and shut your eyes, drift away to when it all seemed simple and easier to understand.
