WONDERFUL RADIO LONDON

WONDERFUL RADIO LONDON

Tony Blackburn on the Breakfast Show, early in '67. Pop went the pirates that summer, including Wonderful Radio London, and the golden era of music radio ended.

I woke up at five worrying about waist pains, and made my mind up not to go to school, but when I got up I decided I'd better. Marvellous weather again so wore my summer dress at last. And it's not too long - when I walk it pulls up.

We went to the Cabbage Patch at lunch again - with my transistor. Lucy says that at her brother's school they've got this good-looking young music teacher called Simon May, who's in a pop group called The Armpits!!!

Anna-Maria and Chump came up later too and we all danced to some fab songs on Radio London.

In History Miss K got onto the lady who came from the Russian Embassy yesterday; when she was asked a question about religion in Russia she didn't know how to answer because everyone born after the Revolution simply doesn't believe in God and has never been brought up to. I never realised before.

'Salut les Copains' came today. Sweet photos of Adamo, and of Antoine in Greece, and the most beautiful picture of Polnareff I have ever seen. I couldn't believe it, he's actually a SNAZZ! Of course I had to ring up Anya - she was boiling over with jealousy. I'll take it to school tomorrow. 

We watched 'Frost Report' in the evening - it was on the countryside and terribly funny. This little boy thought they cut cows in half to get the milk out - he was adorable. 

A note on Simon May

Simon May, who had a hit with 'The Summer of My Life' in 1976, went on to become a successful composer of theme tunes, including the brilliant 'Eastenders'.
