The Sound of Sunday 21 March 2010
When The Sound of Sunday started, John Major was Prime Minister, interest rates were in double figures,and we were in the midst of Gulf War 1
Phillip Schofield and Gordon the Gopher wwre dominating TV screens every Saturday morning and EastEnders was only 6 years old. Simon Mayo was on the radio reading out listeners’ confessions every day and Chris Evens was on TV every morning.
19 yeas on and the state of the economy dominates the news once again as
well as the aftermath of the second Gulf War. Interest rates are at their
lowest ever figures. EastEnders has just celebrated its 25th anniversary
whilst on Saturday mornings, both BBC and ITV may have virtually given up on the traditional Saturday morning TV format, but Phillip Schofield will soon be back on TV on a Saturday once again as “This Morning” gets a
weekend slot – in the afternoons! Simon Mayo is still on the radio reading
confesions (but at the other end of the day) and Chris Evans is still doing
Breakfast (but on the radio).
So 19 years on, this Sunday on the show, Carol Vorderman talks about maths, Duncan Goodhew talks about the national swimathon and Hospital Broadcasting Association President June Snowden looks ahead to National Hospital Broadcasting Week, which starts with the National Hospital Radio Awards on 27 March.
Talking of which, for the first time, I’m off to the National Hospital Radio Awards next week, so this weekend will be the last SOS for a fortnight.
