British Rock and Pop Awards 1980 – February 24 1981

After seeing tweets about last night’s Brits, I decided I would dig out this recording I made from Radio 1 37 years ago!. Sorry for the quality C60 cassettes from 1981 don’t always age well.

Part One – the first 24:30 minutes

Part Two – the last 18:41 minutes

Apologies also for the break between the tracks, turning over a cassette as fast as you could was always a challenge!

Highlights include Sheena Easton with a Scottish accent and the best acceptance speech by David Bowie (this can be seen on YouTube)
