De treiterschijf van vorige week komt deze week binnen op nummer 14 : The Free electric band van Albert Hammond. Ook Late Again van Stealers Wheel komt relatief hoog binnen op 16. Long Tall Arnie Treffers horen we voor het eerst op 43 met Turn your radio on. Een van mijn persoonlijke favorieten en mijn Hitpick in de week van 16 Juni 2001 op de MEBO III is Reeliní in the years van Steely Dan. Redbone staat deze week nog rotsvast op nummer 1 met Wounded Knee. Angeline van Peter en zín Rockets is deze week de treiterschijf en Ferry Maat heeft een prachtig nummer tot kanskaart gekozen : Caribbean Moon van Kevin Ayers.

The RNI memories of Michael Downing for this week in June 1973

 

The week commencing 23 June 1973 was one of the most significant in RNI's life, but, whilst it was the beginning of the end with the passing by De Tweede Kamer of the Anti-Zeezender Wet on Thursday 28 June 1973, it resulted in an interesting week's radio, particularly on the Dutch service.

The action "Radio Noordzee hou'm in de lucht" had started on Friday 22 June 1973 in Buitengaats, presented by Gerard Smit, and continued throughout the week, with all of the DJs on board the Mebo 2 presenting their programmes live. At the start of the week Gerard Smit was presenting Buitengaats and Leo van der Goot was presenting Driemaster, but this changed in the usual way during the week and Marc van Amstel and Dick de Graaf returned to the Mebo 2 and took over Buitengaats and Driemaster respectively.

With all the Dutch Djs that normally recorded their programmes on land being on board, there were a few unique programmes, such as a four hour special on Sunday afternoon presented jointly by Peter Holland, Nico Steenbergen and Leo van der Goot. The Super Top 50 show was broadcast as usual on Saturday 23 June 1973, presented by Ferry Maat, but, due to the "Hou'm in de lucht" campaign, it was not complete by 15.00, so was finished after 15.00 by Tony Berk. Leo van der Goot presented the Troef 20 as usual during Driemaster later on Saturday afternoon.

The International service broadly ignored the passing of the Anti-Zeezender Wet and continued as if nothing was happening. There was one significant change from Friday 22 June, which was the reintroduction of the Smash Play - the first one this week was "Judy in disguise" by John Fred and His Playboy Band - although there were no longer any DJ hitpicks.

The International Top 30 show, presented by Graham Gill on Friday 22 June from 20.00 to 22.00, included a few records that never became UK hits, such as "Red light song" by Blue at no. 4 and "Randolph's Tango" by Thin Lizzy at no. 16. 10CC were at no. 1 with "Rubber Bullets".

There was only ever going to be one record that was played more than any other during the week, however, and that was "Geef ons een kans" by Het Noordzee Koor, the song of the "Hou'm in de lucht" campaign. It would make no. 18 in the Super Top 50 a couple of weeks later.
