SMART SPEAKER? Just say “Alexa, play My Generation Radio Station from tunein”

    Some brilliant memories….


    Hi all,My name is Dave Marley.
    When it comes to music, it literally rules my life. I have been DJing since the early ’80s, but it wasn’t until the mid 90’s that I became interested in radio presenting. I love and respect all types of good music, right from as far back as the classic ’50s through to the indie-pop ’90s. Unfortunately, I didn’t really enjoy much of what music had to offer after the ’90s ended.
    I grew up listening to the radio as a young lad and started collecting vinyl at the mere age of 5 years old in the early ’70s. I would save my pocket money up to buy records as often as possible, and even now, 50 years on, I still collect music and I’m running out of space to put my vinyl collectionI was always a massive fan of the original “Pick of the Pop” presented by the late Alan “Fluff” Freeman back in the day, and I always wanted to take a stab at doing my own take on a vintage chart countdown radio show. So here it is..
    I will be doing just that right here on this station, with my show “The Classic Chart Rundown”. I’ll be bringing you a random Top 20 Chart countdown from anywhere between 1957 to 1989. It’s a real nostalgia trip every time and if you’re like me, a true lover of music, it won’t take you long to fall in love with the show and all the personal memories it holds for every individual.I hope you can join me from time to time.If you would like to catch up with me on Facebook, come and join “The Classic Chart Rundown” group.
    If you enjoy listening to my show, feel free to buy me a coffee White, no sugar 🙂
    See you on-air..
    Dave Marley

    Travelling Man: On The Road With The Searchers
    now in paperback! click above to order

    Frank Allen, front man and bass player with the legendary group The Searchers takes an irreverent look at globetrotting around the world as a superstar rock musician with the famous 60’s band. From the Falklands to Bosnia Frank’s account is both humorous and informative and makes great reading for anyone who is interested in The Searchers or music of the 60’s. Travelling Man is filled with stories. The early days at the famous Star Club in Hamburg with The Beatles who were on the brink of immortality. And his first embarrassing meeting with a young, acid-tongued John Lennon. The astounding American package show that performed six times daily for a week and boasted a lineup that included The Searchers, Dusty Springfield, Millie, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, The Ronettes, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, The Shangrilas and a host of others. And how Frank turned down the chance to be the father of Dusty Springfield’s love child. The pages include a bevy of intriguing characters. The Filipino minder who wanted to kill the roadie. The barmaid who possessed a bosom on which you could land a helicopter. And the lady agent who was ‘the face that lunched a thousand shits’. Frank describes what it is like to land in war-torn Bosnia on the very day the UN commenced the bombing of Sarajevo, and how it feels to pound out your thirty-year-old hits to a hangar full of nineteen year old squaddies. You can also find out why he describes sex for him as being ‘like a dog walking on its hind legs’. This book is not just an insight into the travelling life of a pop group. It is written with an impish sense of humour that will have you chuckling in your seat.


    Why isn’t My Generation Radio on DAB?
    There are a number of costs that a service provider will incur to broadcast on a DAB multiplex.

    Multiplex Costs

    Multiplex capacity fees vary from multiplex to multiplex. However, as a rule of thumb, the cost of carriage for a mono (64 kbit/s regular DAB) service on a non-London multiplex is around £3,500 to £6,000 per month.

    To broadcast on a London multiplex generally costs double.

    For a national multiplex capacity would likely cost in excess of £30,000 per month.

    In addition, there may be some additional costs of connecting a service from your studios to the multiplex centre. This cost would vary according to your location and the relevant multiplex centre but could cost around £500 per month.

    Ofcom Costs
    There is a one off application fee of £250 to apply for a DSP licence, and an annual licence fee of £100, not to mention royalty payments to PPL ans PRS and the hardware needed to broadcast.
