Radio Calypso the early days circa 1995 Joe Zamitt, Joe Cassar, Steve Joy, Jackie Storer, Dave Roberts & Jason Zamitt

Just been looking at your site about Calypso 102. As a regular visitor to Malta since 1995 I always listened to Calypso, I wonder if you knew of a link anywhere to the jingles from 95 that Calypso used? especially the news introduction that had a long fade out into the news,excellent jingle! cheers Lee Schofield

Calypso jingles & beds came from a multitude of sources most were cut-ups & re-inventions of old material just like the old Pirates! - Editor

06/08/16 - Fantastic to see the Radio Calpso pages, may I offer a correction to the photo you have of the presenters. The guy far right is Jason Zammit and the guy in the white t-shirt at the front of the group is me, Dave Roberts. We didn't have a Mark Zammit at that time.
Great to see it... Brings back soooooo many memories. Cheers. Dave Roberts
