There's a new biographical documentary about Herb Alpert which goes on cinema and DVD/Blu-Ray release on October 2nd. We have a special preview of the film, titled Herb Alpert Is... in the early hours of Friday, October 2nd when, for the first time, we host a movie screening on our Facebook pages, and starting at 01:00 GMT. After the screening there will be a Q&A with Herb and the movie's producer, John Scheinfeld.

We were all saddened to hear of the death of the wonderful Dame Diana Rigg on September 10th at the age of 82. The special Tribute programme we broadcast on the evening of her passing will, by request, be repeated on Saturday October 3rd at 18:00 GMT (7pm UK) and on Sunday October 4th at 12:00 GMT (1pm UK).

Listen out for a couple of Specials in early October. John Lennon - The Final Interview needs little explanation other than the programme is a mix of the interview and John's music. Dave Sholin, Laurie Kaye, and Ron Hummel were the last to interview Lennon just a few hours before his death. The show airs on October 3rd at 18:25 GMT. The same night, we pay tribute to our friend and former broadcaster Freddy Cole in a special celebration of his music and his family. The Freddy Cole Connections is hosted by Andre Leon and can be heard on October 3rd at 21:00 GMT with a repeat on Monday October 5th at 06:00 GMT. Details in the new issue of "Radio News".

Please note that our schedule times both online and in "Radio News" are always given in GMT = Greenwich Mean Time. For UK times, please add one hour.

There are still many fans of the music that was featured as background to the BBC test card transmissions in the 60s. Programmes often didn't begin until 5pm and the entire daytime was given over to the pattern and music. Our record label, Lounge Music has put together an album of some of the original music from these days and it's available now on Amazon and other download sites.
