    Also one of the nicest people I've ever met.

    Anyway, I salute you Rick.

    Lest we forget he was also the engineer wizard who worked with Alan Jansson on How Bizarre (for which he shared a Tui in 1996). The pair have been working together since.

    At one time there were at least 3 Andrews on the crew.

    Two more makes 5 – Hawthorne and Dickens. And two Chris’s – Esther and Forster. Much easier when everyone has the same name.

    (see belatedly that others have corrected the Andrew and Chris tally)

    Sorry I got the phone call mentioning "lawyers" so I had to take it down...

    I just signed up for SkyGo (free) as suggested by RB, and you can indeed watch RADIO PUNKS there...

  • Steve Barnes,

    I think people who are having problems with Sky Go are falling foul of its flakeiness.
    I signed up quite a while ago and found it would tell me that I needed to be a "Premium" subscriber, then it would tell me I had no Sky Go account, then my password or eMail was wrong.
    I just went to prove that, as a non Sky subscriber, we could not access the "Radio Punk" episode only to be told that the content was not available, then I had no account, then the "Premium" nonsense, then... hey presto... AOK.
    Well, what do you expect from a company who's security guards locked me up for trying to return equipment?.
    Muppets.

  • Barry,

    Perhaps rather than saying student radio had its glory days in the 1980's, that is when it hit its stride. My experience was with Radio One - I was on the OUSA exec, and it was about 1983 we finally had sufficient stability with our licence to justify a major investment in the station - setting up a studio, buying proper equipment and hiring staff. In those days, I was too scared of the music on the One to be a regular listener, but I did end up running a couple of shows on Control about 15 years later.
