Episode 336 – Seaside Memories

On this weeks show we conclude the 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 Nigel Ogden is at the microphone and in his archive as he brings us Reg’s last solo broadcast from the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool in 1967.
