Good Morning Angel Radio
I hope you can manage a longish e mail as I have so much I would like to say.
We were introduced to Angel Radio by our neighbour Mr Ian Horner, whose large 78 record collection I believe has been of use to you. We now listen most mornings on our internet radio as we get ourselves fit for the day - although I have to disappear to work 3 mornings a week as I'm a mere 59! Maurice has the luxury of listening all day if he wants to! However, this morning you played Legend of the Glass Mountain, followed shortly by Oh My Beloved Father. Well, Glass Mountain was one of my Father's favorites and he played it beautifully on the piano, then that song was one of his and mine favorite songs - I had lumps in my throat. What a marvellous concept to have a pledge day too. I'll press on the appropriate buttons in a minute and work out how to get some pennies to you. Oh yes, just one little thing - your presenters are telling us to phone in but not giving out the phone number. Down here in Devon we don't know it by heart yet.
Now then, I have a big big favour to ask. I was raised by my Nan and Dad's youngest sister Beryl was only 11 years older than me and still at home too. The very first record she bought with her first wage packet was "Little Red Monkey" It was played over and over till she wore it out. Do you have a copy anywhere please and if so is there a record/CD it is on that I could get for her as a super surprise for her birthday - which is today actually - oops I must phone her. If you have any info I'd be over the moon. We hope to be in Hampshire in Sept sorting out Dad's place (we moved to Michelmersh when I was 7) and will try to pop over to Havant and say hello.
Brilliant station and yes 'tis true, most folk do think music started with the Beatles.
Jan and Maurice
