James H Reeve home page
James h reeve is one of manchesters' leading celebrities;broadcaster,writer,
wit,and manchester city supporter.
i dont know much of his history in show business prior to 1986,although i know
he was relieved of his post at piccadilly for playing a certain record when
our beloved queen had blanks fired at her at the 1981 trooping of the colour.
apparently he then spent some time in the mysterious east reading the news or
something.he came back to piccadilly in 1986 to present a phone in show to
compete with allan beswicks' on red rose which was taking thousends of
listeners from stations all over northern england.
he left piccadilly in the early 90's and spent some time on sheffields hallam
radio,in between presenting sports shows on radio 5 and fortune 1458 with
soccer chief,perjurer,and adulterer thomas henderson docherty.bbc gmr went
into the transfer market in 1995 to snap him up.he now presents a 3 hour
afternoon show,and makes regular appearences on local television discussing
sport amongst other topics.more detail will follow in the coming months as i
can't be bothered at the moment.i would like to issue a general appeal for
contributions.i have a few cassettes of james'various shows over the years
but am looking for the semi official compilation released in about 1987.
james often gives out car registration numbers of discorteous drivers, up and
down Bury New Road and I
would like to take this opportunity to avail some of them to you.
prizes awarded for any sightings,you too could win some odour eaters
many more numbers from our archives will follow.
links coming soon---tom lee, does he grow anything the drug squad would be
interested in? kevin way in lovejoy scandal?,even steven-where is he now?.
Alexandrina is she a babe?how small is jane hodson,and do the backroom
production staff think all gmr listeners are sad cases who usually spend their
days stinking out the reference section of the local library?
these and other pressing questions will be addressed in the coming decades.
