WEBSITE GENERAL

 

What's this site all about? BACK TO TOP

Radio Rewind remembers the sounds of Radio 1 and Radio 2 with a nostalgic  look at the history of the  stations, it's people, sounds, shows and highlights from inception in 1967 right up to the 21st Century. It is an unofficial site and not connected with the BBC; for information about official sites, please see this notice

 

Who made it and when? BACK TO TOP

The website is researched, designed and compiled by Alan Davies of Merthyr Tydfil, U.K. Launched in Nov 1999 as a one page BT internet customer site, it now contains 242 pages and over 4,000 sound files on-line, with an average 26,000 hits per day. The site would not have been possible without the many kind contributions from other historic Radio 1 supporters.

 

What plans do you have for the site in the future? BACK TO TOP

More people pages and audio, especially from the 1960's/early 1970's period.

 

Can I link to Radio Rewind? BACK TO TOP

Links to the index or other pages are most welcome, provided your site does not contain illegal, adult or otherwise offensive material. However direct file 'hotlinking' and content copying is prohibited.

Why haven't you replied to my email yet? BACK TO TOP

Radio Rewind is a 'hobby' website, which is worked on during my spare time. Unfortunately sometimes I just don't have enough time, but I do aim to reply within 7 days.

 

MATERIAL/ INFORMATION  REQUESTS

 

Can you provide me with contact details for a DJ? BACK TO TOP

I do not provide contact details for any persons, or forward any messages to them.

 

I would like my favourite DJ on the people list BACK TO TOP

The listing is only a selection; many more people will be added over the coming months and years, as time allows.

 

Do you have old playlists from a particular show? BACK TO TOP

Radio Rewind does not have access to archive playlists.

 

Can I have a full copy of a theme tune? BACK TO TOP

The tunes featured are low quality one minute sample clips only. I do not supply full copies at higher quality.

 

Where can I find out more about the history of Radio 1? BACK TO TOP

You could try the publications shown as bibliography on the Thanks page. You May find more sources in archive national press.

 

AUDIO/PICTURES

 

Why can't I hear the mp3 files when I click on a link? BACK TO TOP

 

Please check Audio Help Page in case of difficulty downloading. You will need a username and password. Please choose a password to register. Then you will be able to login. Unlike other websites, there is no charge for registering or downloading. The first time you use the system, you will have to log in to the network twice. Please select 'remember my password' on the browser window to help you download the sounds next time. Please note most users have no problem downloading the Radio Rewind sound files so it is most unlikely that a problem encountered is due to a fault with the Radio Rewind site.

 

Why are many of the sounds at a low quality/bitrate? BACK TO TOP

Radio 1 was broadcast on AM for most of the time until 1988, which of course is lower quality. The lower bitrate is necessary, especially on longer recordings, to save on server bandwidth and disc space costs. Additionally, it is taken into account that many users have only a 56kbps dial-up modem.

 

Why do you have a message saying you can't accept audio or photographic material? BACK TO TOP

Many people have kindly provided these in the past, and at the moment I am still working through these. When the work is complete, the message will be removed so if you have some archive material, keep checking, I May be glad of specific audio (especially 1960s/70s) in the future.

 

Can I send you my old cassettes? BACK TO TOP

Unfortunately due to space and time restrictions it is not always possible to accept recordings (see also above). If in doubt, please email.
