Listen to Beverley FM's MORNING MIX January 28 1000 - Midday - https://beverleyfm.com/ when we look back at how commercial radio really started out in Europe with RADIO LUXEMBOURG which, in the late 1930's, saw a revenue of more than five million pounds a year coming into its English Service.

Above is a pic of ALEX DUNN who will present out main show for the week beginning this Saturday January 29. He's the breakfast DJ on Beverley FM weekdays between 0600-1000 GMT. Watch this page on Friday for his music list and full details of broadcast stations and times.


DAVID KNOPFLER,  who featured on the first two Dire Straits albums - the band he helped to form - now has the 4th volume of his ANTHOLOGY available. This includes SHADOWLANDS and THE FUN OF THE FAIR which has been one of the most popular recently recorded tracks in the show this year. Now we have the release of his new album  - for more information on this and his other solo albums see - https://parisrecords.co.uk/ 

Ace Records have an interesting album with SCOTT WALKER presenting Jacques Brel songs alongside the originals sung by the composer. You will find classics here such as 'If You Go Away'  and 'Jackie', presented in the two very different styles. We play a Walker Brothers track in our main show this week.











Just look at the line up on the BLUES BAND album above. We'll be featuring tracks soon with some great vocals from ex-Manfred Mann frontman Paul Jones and Tom McGuinness. The album will also be available as a 2-LP vinyl set from April by the way. This release is from Repertoire Records - see more about the band at http://www.thebluesband.net/ 

As TONY BENNETT announces his well-earned retirement from the stage, Jasmine Records issued a new CD and it includes classics such as 'I Wanna Be Around' and 'I Left My Heart in San Francisco'. It's a double-album, so great value from one of the classiest singers.

I have been in the media business now for 55 years starting out with local newspapers in Surrey and then Record Mirror and Music Week, part of the Billboard group. I then joined Pye Records/ATV and Stoll-Moss Theatres at the end of the 60’s. In 1971 I moved to BBC Radios 1 & 2 in the early 70’s and then worked for Radio Luxembourg/Atlantic 252 in a management capacity and then ran local commercial stations in Glasgow, London and the Isles of Man and Lewis. My programme is currently broadcast by a mix of FM and internet stations and I am now Chairman of Isles FM, a Director of Beverley FM and a Board consultant to another station. In 2002 we had a world exclusive on Frank Sinatra on Isles FM - see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/1790935.stm
