On this weeks show we start the first part of two shows remembering Mr. Blackpool – Reginald Dixon. 30th March saw the 50th anniversary of Reg leaving the tower and a massive 90 years since he started there.
Tonight we are taking you back in time to the 29th March 1970 and to the farewell broadcast – performed live to a capacity crowd.
