presentation to our members last Tuesday.

made a point of feeding back to me how enjoyable your input was – the memories invoked

Dave says - " These days we're always encouraged to look ahead and look to the future, but for those of us of a certain age, it's nice sometimes to look back. I've been astounded by the success of 'Yesterday Once More' here in
the West of Scotland and I love meeting many of my listeners from the last 40 years."
I'll take you behind the scenes and turn the clock back to those pioneering days in the early 70's when Radio Clyde launched as one of the U.K 's first Independent Local Radio stations.
Join me as we relax together for an hour or so, to reminiscence about my days in radio, our enviable studio guest list of celebrities and our childhood and teenage years back in the 50' 60's & 70's"
