I had so many BAA responses (via e-mail) to my Monte Umbe ‘video’ that I dug out a few old Patrick audio tapes today, and, after a bit of work on the sound, uploaded them. None are as entertaining as the Monte Umbe performance, but they are still a nostalgic trip back to the late 1970s and 1980s, which seems like yesterday. The Kettering Grammar school prog may be particularly interesting to amateur radio astronomy enthusiasts, at least I would imagine it would be…..?
The other recordings cover Patrick as a Radio 4 birthday guest (just before he turned 56) in 1979 and Patrick talking to John Dunn on Radio 2 in 1989…….with quite a few Halley memories, plus other stuff. Sound quality is far from perfect, but then they were made from old audio cassettes that were almost falling apart……… Enjoy!
