    Beatlemania memories

    More from paulmartinDJ

    I was a top British DJ at the PEAK of the British invasion in the US !


    I was there at the top on radio in the uk, australia and the us when Beatlemania began and I also introduced them, the Stones and most British bands at their concerts.

    I have attached some of my 1960's press clips which I am very proud of being a radio jock long before the Beatles made it I just happened later to be in the right places at the right time and wow what experiences that was a great time to be in America and British !

    I now live in Tokyo but still appear as a guest on radio Worldwide and make low budget movies.

    Dear Mr Martin,

    I'm writing to thank you for your tremendous effort and assistance in filing regular interviews and updates on the situation in Japan for 2UE across the weekend, during what must have been a very frightening time.

    Your initial interview with Stuart Bocking on Friday night blew us away - your insight, considered thoughts and evocative descriptions really impressed upon our listeners the gravity and extent of the situation confronting Japan.

    I know my colleagues continued to touched base with you across the weekend on the George and Paul Show and Weekend Breakfast with John Stanley  and the feedback has been overwhelming. A number of people have made a point of saying to me this morning how compelling your interviews were, along with the content and experiences you related.

    2UE really appreciates your support and assistance - our listeners were also greatly appreciative of the opportunity to hear from someone on the ground in Japan about the severity of the situation and extent of impact.

    I will most definitely send you through an air check of your Friday Night interview as soon as possible - it will take me a little while to turn the audio around this morning but I just wanted to touch base first to express my gratitude for your assistance and your time.

    On behalf of my colleagues, please accept our sincere thanks.

    Our thoughts are with you and your family, and the nation of Japan, at this difficult time.

    If there's anything we can do to be of assistance in coming days or weeks, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Warm regards,

    Programing Operations

    Dea Mr. Martin,

    Thank you very much for joining us on The Larry Elder Show on April 9th, 2013. Your knowledge of the situation in North Korea was very much appreciated and gave our listeners much needed insight on what is REALLY going on at ground level.

    Know that we will be contacting you in the future if/when things heat up even further with North Korea.

    Warmest Regards,

    Dear Paul,

    Thank you very much for coming on The World Today Weekend with Sean Leslie on April 3rd, 2011.
    Even though you were discussing the tragedy that Japan was going through following the massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami, you brought some levity to the situation. You also shed some light some issues that our host didn’t even know about, which was wonderful not only for him, but our listeners as well.
    You were very informative and allowed people here in Vancouver, BC to feel as though they were in Japan.
    We would gladly have you on the show again in the future!

    I'm writing on behalf of reporter Paul Martin. Paul provided live reports
    for KGO Newstalk 810 AM radio in San Francisco immediately following the Japan earthquake on 3/11/11.
    Paul did an excellent job of describing the initial damage reports, kept our listeners informed about the danger of nuclear fallout, and also described
    the powerful aftershocks that hit while he was broadcasting live with us from his office in Tokyo.
    We appreciate Paul's coverage and would not hesitatet o use him in the future.
