De hoogste nieuwe binnenkomer is een oud nummer dat door Bobby Vinton in een nieuw jasje gestoken is : Sealed with a kiss. Het prachtige Child in time van Deep Purple verschijnt deze week voor ít eerst in de Top 50 en wel op nummer 40. En jawel, op nummer 46 zien en horen we Ďm binnenkomen, Rock & Roll Part 1 van Gary Glitter en die zal nog door menige luidspreker gaan dreunen deze zomer. Hoe zonnig deze zomer was weet ik niet precies meer, ik dacht dat het wel meeviel, hoewel we volgens Bolland & Bolland toch op de zonneschijn moeten wachten. Althans dat zingen ze deze week elk uur tijdens het draaien van de Treiterschijf. Het prachtige Youíre lost little girl van de Doors is deze week de kanskaart van Ochtendeditie. Een nummer met, vrees ik, weinig hitpotentie maar wel ongelooflijk mooi.

Deze Top 50 kun je hier beluisteren:

Featured in the programme is "The Nordsee Story Part 3", which includes extracts from Alan West, Vic Pelli and Stevi Merike from the re-opening of the station in February 1971, Alan West, Hans ten Hooge and Dave Rogers from 15 May 1971 (the day of the attack), Terry Davis from 22 November 1971, when the Mebo 2 broke its anchor chain, and Tony Allan from about a month ago. Also mentioned on the programme was that RNI had been testing its second medium wave transmitter, although I have not heard any tests.

24.00 - 3.00 Brian McKenzie

The shortwave transmitter developed a fault during Driemaster and is therefore off the air for the rest of the day. Paul May cut his hand on a can of 7 Up at 19.50 during his programme and Rob Eden sits in until Paul gets back from having it patched up. Arnold Layne, Brian McKenzie and Rob Eden read the news.

Friday 14 July 1972

The programme schedule is the same as yesterday, with the addition of a Skyline programme from 3.00 to 6.00 on Saturday morning, presented by Mike Ross.

Rob Eden, reading the news at 19.30, announced himself as Robert Eden at the start of the bulletin and as Robbie Eden at the end. Also reading news this evening are Tony Allan, Brian McKenzie and Arnold Layne.

Arnold Layne says about the Casuals' "Tara Tiger Girl" "If nobody else on this boat likes it, I do. Tony Allan dislikes it, Brian McKenzie loathes it, Rob Eden doesn't understand it, but I love it".
