1972 will surely go down in pop history as the year The Osmonds came to town. When they took part in the Jimmy Young Show, their fans tried to storm Broadcasting House. Mayfair's telephone exchange was thrown into confusion as thousands of weeny-boppers dialled the special answering-service set up to give callers the latest information about their tour. Their London hotel was under siege for a week.
Now, for the first time in Britain, The Osmonds - DONNY, ALAN, JIMMY, JAY, MERRILL and WAYNE - tell their own story in words and music on Radio London's exclusive documentary. The programme includes the hit sounds of 1972 and tracks from their brand-new Crazy Horses album, to be released in 1973 Introduced by DAVID CARTER

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
