Sounds of The 70'S - 1 hour from the 70s, Just what it says - a show featuring music from a very diverse decade, plus music news from today in the 70s, the "sloppy bit in the middle" and the chart entry song from that week to finish with!
Dark Side of the Moon is a 2 hour Classic, Progressive Rock Show, Gary recalls the days when many tracks lasted for 8 minutes, yet these albums sold in the millions and are rarely heard on radio. Already bringing back some memories for hundreds of thousands! Perfect for fans of Sabbath, Genesis, Led Zeppelin or Floyd!
The Gary Jackson Show is a 2 hours radio show packed with special features. Not for the audience's benefit, but because at his age just staying awake for two hours is tough enough, and every little helps!
Alternatively known as "The Gary Jackson Experience" (Hendrix won't mind) this show is an ideal generic show suitable for either filling in when a regular presenter is off, or as many stations have done, giving it its own slot at a time of week when presenters are hard to come by!

Gary writes a monthly sixties column for the Hampshire Chronicle and he also publishes the official websites for his friends The Searchers and The Troggs!

Presents: Pat Gwinn At The Beach.
Pat Gwinn At The Beach is a two-hour radio show celebrating Rhythm & Blues and Carolina Beach Music. Pat exemplifies the lyrics of one of the most popular hits by the magnificent and ever so talented O’Jays – “I Love Music”. In that selection, the lyrics bring to light the words, “I love music, any kind of music; I love music just as long as it’s groovin’; makes me laugh, makes me smile all the while….
The hits are from current and past beach music played by beloved artists or hits from some of the greatest R&B entertainers ever to grace the airways, Pat skillfully combines those artists to create a show that you the listener will enjoy from the moment the first note is heard to the last chord on that final song.
The ability to smoothly transition from “Ain’t That Peculiar?” by Marvin Gaye to the sultry tones of anything but anything by one Barry White and on to the Grand Strand’s beach music takes a unique talent. Pat has that talent; he knows how to bring to the listener those songs that will be a reminder of days gone by and the times in life we most remember.
His endless knowledge of the artists and special details about them and/or their recordings adds a dimension to the show that further takes the listener by the hand – back to a special time in life.
Was it a first kiss? Was it a special dance after a football game? Was it a special love or a sadness of love forever lost? The questions really don’t matter – they don’t define the music. It is the music that defines the memories that we all hold in a very special place – in our hearts. It is the music that defines us.
Just stop a moment and listen – you just can’t help but think back to that most special moment brought to you by a man who just loves any kind of music – any kind at all.
