Compilations by Geoff Lumley

LBC News 1973 to 1993 (LBC produced compilation tape)

Off air recordings of programmes

Off air recordings of snippets of LBC

Snippets from LBC

The following are, for the most part, unedited and taken straight from the cassettes recorded off air. My aim was to get either jingles, voices or ads and there is some irritating switching on and off of the tape in the recordings. All in mp3 format.

Original LBC jingles
Early 1974, collection of the original jingles in their later format with Douglas Cameron on voice over (hence recorded between March and summer)
LBC New Sound 1974
The new Jeff Wayne jingles, as first heard in mid-1974
1974/75 clips
1st Birthday, October 74 election, Frequency change, end of 24 hour broadcasting. Some great old ads too. 1st live broadcast from Parliament
1974 Nightline
Clips from Adrian Love's Nightline in 1974
Melanie Parker and Jingles
the last few weeks of Augustus Barnett's ad series, performed as a Soap Opera: THE WORLD OF MELANIE PARKER. Also contains jingles, the LBC Minstrel, LBC's 10th birthday etc. Anything Goes theme. Some ITV themes too (LWT's 6 o'clock Show, Blockbusters, Robin Hood).
George Gale

Mono recordings, including various presenters on AM, Jellybone with Jean Davis and interview with Kermit the Frog. Also music played as it was the Silver Jubilee.
Just before Easter Brian Hayes' theme, Midday Report and AM clips. Includes whole of Hayes theme with no voice over. I think this was 1977 but might have been the year before.
First Live Parliament
Rick Davis, Peter Allen and Ed Boyle bring the first live broadcast from Parliament (other than the experiment a few years earlier). Question on Wales.

45 minutes from 1978, including Evening News ad, the Rib Room at the Carlton Tower, some LBC Bloopers, the strike and the first programmes afterwards, Brian Hayes theme, Monty Modlyn trailer and more
1978 recordings (2) More, including clips from AM and LBC Reports (hosted by Paul and Tricia Ingrams), Rick Davies' last LBC Reports, ads from Barretts, British Caledonian and Hertz (No 1 Man). Themes for Sportswatch and After 8...and my own mention on AM!

Nightline Mix
Excerpts from Adrian Love's Nightline, mostly 1974. In those days I recorded it overnight (on slow tape) and then this was re-recorded onto cassette, so quality is not wonderful. In Mono.
