RSPB booklet and flexidisc, 1980. 'Made in England by Sound For Industry'
I've got a real thing about recordings of birds. Some people think it's naff, but I love it. I've open a few gigs with just bird-song. It's amazing to see how moods change, when a venue is filled with the sound of nature. Nice flexidisc.
Agreed. I think it's fairly well documented that there will always be complaints received when test transmissions are replaced by the intended radio station -- Classic FM was preceded by a birdsong station.I've sometimes played 'Swifts Over Stoke Newington' from 'Your Favourite London Sounds' in DJ sets -- for times like this when you can't quite imagine it ever being summer.
Birdsong FM is sadly missed
Radio New Zealand used to play birdcalls regulary. This makes me want to dig out a birdsong LP I have.
