Having hear Jack Jackson, Adrian managed to provide an updated version on Saturday mornings in 1978 and then at lunchtime on VHF later that year. He always had an amusing handover to Paul Gambaccini after his show. It's a great loss that Radio 2 could not have given him a programme after his exit from Radio 1.

This programme brought a breath of fresh air to mundane radio, saturday afternoon shop culture and boring sports coverage with funny skits, amusing voiceovers, and a good selection of music to boot. I listened in stereo on Radio 2's FM frequencies from 1'o'clock which was much better than the compressed horrible sounding 1053/1089 plaform, and it was a joy to hear the 'Juste in full blown stereo as well.

I used to work on Saturdays and I recorded Adrian's lunch time show to listen to later in the evening. No matter how bad a day I had at work, it was something to look forward to at the end of the day. They were a great mix of sketches, jokes and music. I had some recordings for a while, but they became unplayable and I miss them.I would love to hear the shows again. A sad loss to Radio.

I Agree. I wish you could buy some of his Radio 1 shows on CD. I've got a couple of tapes but they're getting a bit well worn now.

What a waste, his was probably one of the best shows on Radio. It was enjoyable on a different level. Whereas the other presenters tried to be interesting and funny, Adrian's show actually was entertaining and very funny with music thrown in.
