Have just acquired an old push button Ekco.radio.
Wonderful station names on the buttons such as Light/Munic/Hilv/Lux/Home etc.

So I turned it on and pressed the Home button.
Out of the crackle came,
"This is the BBC Home service, here is the news, and this is Alvar Lidell reading it"

Then I woke up.

Alvar Liddell, there's a name from the past, when they spoke BBC English. Sometimes .I cringe at the language of young presenters now!

A few years ago Radio 4 (the old Home service ) closed down at midnight with someone saying,
"That's yer lot for today/"

Infuriated, I write to the Chairman of BBC pointing out that this channel was once the flagship of BBC radio
and that expression was a musical expression not worthy of the Home Service.

Then had a phone call from a BBC producer apologizing to me.
I have never heard that closing down remark again !

Ah your dream brought back memories of Sunsilk shampoo advertised on Radio Luxemberg. I remember my first bottle of "real " grown up shampoo was Peach Sunsilk and I can still see the bottle now! I spotted the radio in a museum I visited earlier this year, a large bush radio about 2 feet long and 10 inches wide and a 18" high with short band, long wave and medium I think?
