Radio Hallam

Recommended Posts

Anybody remember this radio show. John Green (jtg900@hotmail.com) used to dj on a Saturday night about 6 to 7. Great stuff in about 1975, when you were just getting into this scene. Send him a mail if you remember it.

Lots of other top acts followed including Richard Searling.

Nothing happening there now but it did play a big part back then.

Can't remember John Green, was just a bit early for me (no snide comments Steve or Mark!) but used to listen to Searling on Soul Source religously every Saturday evening.

Anybody remember the Clifton Hall special he did when Alan Senior was his guest?

Alan Senior. Not seen him in about 25 years.

He used to go to the White Greyhound in Edlington when Pete Shirley was DJ.

Great Days.

Ed

Saw Alan last year at John Benson's birthday bash, not seen or heard of Pete Shirley for years though.

John Green is alive and well and generally pops his head into our box at Hillsborough. In fact we'll see him tomorrow for the Ipswich game.

JG runs a successful Sporting/Events business. A dear friend and looks well after all these years.

Yes.

Remember the show well.. Specially remember the interviews he used to do with people waiting to get into venues, I can still recall someone asking for the Spellbinders "for all the Rotherham crowd". I'm just wondering if the old reel to reel tapes I used to do of the show still exist at my Mum & Dads house. Have'nt got owt to play em on though. beer.gif

Cheers,

Derek.

Seen Pete the odd time or two, last time was at Half Time Orange last time I went. Not sure but think he could be living Leicester way now.

A mate of mine, well old mate, not seen him for years, recorded every Richard Searling show on Hallam, dunno if he recorded any prior to Richard's show.

:ohmy:

By other top acts you can only mean Kelly Temple Ed. :)

After JG, it was Hallam staffers until Richard started with them. All pop dj's who borrowed records from Alan Millington and myself for the three record Northern spots they did.

If my memory serves me correctly Soul Shotgun was eventualy replaced by Soul Temple featuring an awful DJ called Kelly Temple, the less said the better.

I never, ever missed his show... I used to have a stock of C60 cassettes containing recordings... In a fit of cleaning up I chucked them all, plus my recordings at Wigan (boo hoo) in the very early 90's... stooooooooooooooopid me! sad.gif

Graham (MP3Z2CD) has only just forgiven me (nearly)... John Green did a brilliant show and I'm glad to read that he is still fit and well!

Remember his well. I used to live about 45 miles from Sheffield. The reception was pretty poor and the only way I could get a decent signal was to take the radio outdoors and stand at the end of the garden. Parents thought I was mad. Never did find out what the neighbours made of it though smile.gif

I rember the show very well and still have Tapes of it (if they've managed to survive the recent flood).

Soul Shotgun was an extremely varied show, with lots of the better new releases of the time in amongst the 60's / Northern.

Well remember such gems as Grover Mitchell "What Hurts" and Fantastic Puzzles "Come Back" being played as new British releases. Dave Godin often contributed, so the quality was consistently high.

I have bumped into John on many occasion over the past 12 years or so.

He's been quite heavily involved in Sports Promotion and as for quite a few years I was Marketing Director of Sanderson, the then sponsor of Sheffield Wednesday, he'd often tap me up for a table or two at some of his 'Gentleman's Evenings' and Sports Personality Dinners. I also had a Box for a half dozen seasons at Wednesday so I'd see him there quite frequently.

A good, big hearted lad is John. I bought his record collection from him in the early 90's ( a couple of car loads) and it was good to find all the stuff he'd aired on Soul Shotgun in there.

All very nice.
