This has made my mate and member on here - mjpics -  VERY happy as he has so much information right from the start of the broadcast and also a very good friend of Keith Skues - one of the original DJ on board her - and he lives in Horning too.

Brings back memories of listening to it on a little hand held transistor radio. After dodgy reception on Luxembourg, it was fantastic.

That’s great news and I like the anecdote about old cardboard shoes but what would really make my Christmas is to hear laser 558 blasting out some 80s tunes, broat up to date a bit, frankie goes to bewilderwood perhaps...

Haven’t managed to hear the latest broadcasts, but mention of the name reminds me of early teenage years, sent to bed because it was a school night, but curling up underneath my blankets with a tiny transistor radio held close to my ear so my parents wouldn’t know I was listening into the early hours of morning.

Back in the 60s when I was growing up, I always wanted a transistor radio. You could get 5, 6 or even (the ultimate luxury) a 7 transistor radio (double superhet).

The problem was, that back then they used to cost things like £5 19s 8d which was way outside my league.

Then, one day, a friend of my Dad's came to the house for a meeting (probably about cricket) and he had got a lovely transistor radio with him. He called me over and said that he had heard that I was interested in electronics. The radio he was carrying was broken and he had taken it back to the shop who said it was beyond repair. He then gave me the radio in case it had any parts inside that I could make use of.

This was fantastic and I thanked him very much and took the radio up to my bedroom where I fixed the simple fault. Ten minutes later I was down again with the radio working to thank him once again for such a wonderful gift.

After he had gone, my Dad told me that his friend now wished he hadn't given me the radio, but he could hardly ask for it back. Instead he was going back to the shop to moan about them telling him that it was beyond repair when a 12 year old could fix it in 5 minutes flat.

I have still got the radio somewhere and it still works. I can remember listening to various pirate radio stations on it with the government running jamming signals to try to stop them.

My first radio was a Gaiety 6 transistor complete with leather carry case. It took a PP3 battery which didn't seem to last very long and, I seem to remember, were quite expensive.

I saved my pocket money and probably a bit of money I'd been given for Christmas and it cost me £5-19s-6d. They did them in ivory, red and black. I had the ivory one.
