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

 

At the beginning of August 1973 RNI's International service was short of DJs as a result of the departure of Arnold Layne, so Rob Eden came out to the Mebo 2 to help out until a new DJ was recruited. That new DJ would be Robin Banks, who had worked on Radio Caroline earlier in 1973, but who presented programmes of a type which were not in keeping with the programmes which were being broadcast from the Mi Amigo by August 1973. By this time the English programmes on the Mi Amigo were from Radio Seagull, whose format was a lot different from the Top 40 format which Radio Caroline International had had on 389 metres in June 1973. So Robin, who had broadcast on Radio Caroline as Robin Adcroft, fitted better on RNI at this time. Rob Eden made the first promo for Robin, which went "Robbing banks has never been much fun, but now Robin Banks can be fun......."

On the Dutch service, there was little change, with the main schedule being:

6.00 Buitengaats (live from the Mebo 2 with Marc van Amstel or Gerard Smit)

9.00 Branding (Non-stop)

10.00 Peter Holland

12.00 Tony Berk

14.00 Ferry Maat

16.00 Driemaster (live from the Mebo 2 with Leo van der Goot or Dick de Graaf)

18.00 - 20.00 Nico Steenbergen

But changes were just around the corner. Peter Holland and Gerard Smit fell out of favour with programme director John de Mol and were demoted, with Peter having only regular programmes at the weekend, as well as covering for other Djs whilst they were on holiday, whilst Gerard went back to being only a newsreader, his place on Buitengaats taken over by Hans Molenaar. Peter would leave RNI early in November 1973, but Gerard remained and eventually became one of the regular hosts of Buitengaats again in the spring of 1974.

Dick de Graaf was on board the Mebo 2 on 11 August 1973 and therefore presented the Troef 20 on that Saturday. Mike Ross presented the International service Top 30 on Friday 10 August 1973.
