Radio Solent

In 1970[1] Delia created a four-second call sign for the BBC local radio station Radio Solent by condensing and superimposing the melodic elements of the traditional theme "Oh God Our Help In Ages Past."[2]

Delia created it on a EMS Synthi equipment and "uses the ring modulator to make unusual chime sounds".[3]

Its tape's catalogue entry is dated April 1970[4] and another tape, labelled "Radio Solent Idents (1971)", also produced for David Challis, is dated February 1971.[5] I don't know if this is a copy of the earlier work or a new set of idents.
