Hi there, pop pickers! Guess what? If you’re hooked up to the Watford telephone exchange you will be able to “Dial-a-disc” from Monday [December 7, 1970].

Yes, sir, you kids in Watford, Garston, Kings Langley, Northwood, Chorleywood, Rickmansworth and Radlett don’t have to go all moony ‘cos you’ve left your transistor behind. Just pop into a call box and get with the scene by dialling 16.

And for your money you will get a different record every day straight from the Top Twenty.

[From the Watford Observer of December 4, 1970]
