Well, I don’t expect this message to be greeted with the excitement that heralds the arrival of a batch of newly-digitised tapes, but I’ve just completed typing up the playlists for (virtually) the whole of 1994. It comes in at almost 37,000 words and took far, far longer than I had expected.
You can see the results of my efforts at www.avistic.demon.co.uk
In its heyday the avistic website was updated on a (sort of) weekly basis from Ceefax listings published by the BBC, and getting them on the website was just a matter of a quick cut and paste. Today, however, I’m working from a mixture of ancient PasBs and handwritten lists provided to me some years ago by various listeners and quite apart from the typing, the cross-checking of the entries for consistency was a huge task. There are one or two incomplete entries and I’m sure some mis-spellings have slipped in, so if anyone can supply me with corrections please do and I’ll get them entered up.
Now I’m off to the Wikia to do some linking..
