I didn't realise anyone would be interested in these. I have several shows that I recorded by direct connection on reels at 7½ i.p.s. They are in my garage, and in good condition, boxed and in polythene bags.
From memory, there are many shows with Simon Dee as regular presenter; then when he left, they invited different pop people to present their Sixties favourites. I know for certain I have programmes with Jonathan King, Bruce Welch, Gerry Marsden, and Freddie Garrity. I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones I remember at the moment.
I have two reel-to-reel (Akai GX-4000D) machines; in fact, the recordings were made on one of these. Would it be worthwhile my transferring them to digital?

Your comments make me wonder if you have the Radio 1 series with Alan Freeman, "The Story of Pop" broadcast in 1973/4. These 26 episodes seem to have vanished, except for the episode on Pirate Radio. I taped them on C120 cassettes at the time, transcribed them(!), saved the music, and them erased them. (Sigh!!) Any help with these would be appreciated!

There was a rebooted "Story of Pop" made in the 1980s. Noel Edmonds was involved. The original series, featuring Alan Freeman, is the one I've been trying to find. The search is made complicated by the second like-named series.
