Old documentary

Post by Abc676 » Wed Jan 27, 2016 6:27 pm

Right this might seem a vague distant memory but does anyone remember a documentary or programme in the garage days that I believe featured flex when it was on 103.6

All I can remember is some guy at the bottom of the block, then they were in the studio which was heavily curtained, someone was tuning a hi Fi into there own signal and the tune playing was the uk garage remix of nena cherrys buddy X. So I'm assuming the year would have been 99/2000. All docs I've ever seen have never featured this clip. Maybe someone on here knows some flex guys who remember this.

Cheers

I dont remember the Flex doc but who remembers the one called Bedroom Radio? it was about a Scottish couple who ran a station called Allusion Fm off a council estate in Paiseley. http://www.bigskyfilmfest.org/archives/ ... radio/2005 was quite sad too as the bloke who runs it died.
