|Comment / History:|
| During the 60’s Alan Freeman was a DJ on the BBC Light Programme, his weekly Sunday evening “Pick of the pops” show played the current pop music hit parade, as a teenager this was a brilliant show and a total breakaway from the BBC Brass bands and polite chat shows.
In the early years of Kaleidoscope (1967) a lot of telephone requests were received for music that had been played by Alan Freeman on the previous Sunday evening, not being able to afford such a large collection of modern 45 rpm hit records, Alan’s shows were often recorded and rebroadcast on Radio-K.
When Alan finally met us at Jon Langston place he thought it was hilarious.
