1965 Radio stations

A few pages of Revista do Radio's section 'São Paulo não para' with news from the radio scene in the largest city in Brazil. 



Luiz Aguiar substituted Sergio Galvão at Radio Bandeirantes at the helm of 'Os brotos comandam' (Teens rule) circa 1965. 

DJ Ricardo Macedo had a daily show during 1965, called 'Placard Bandeirantes do Sucesso' at Radio Bandeirantes. On Mondays & Tuesdays from 9:30 to 10:00 AM Ricardo Macedo showed the 10 best selling extended-plays (5 on Monday & 5 on Tuesday); on Wednesdays and Thursdays Macedo presented the 10 best selling albums; on Friday & Saturdays he showed the 10 best selling singles. On Sundays, Ricardo Macedo had a 2-hour show starting at 10:00 AM up to mid-day where he played the 25 best selling singles of the week.

At Radio Tupi, that had been 'modernized and revolutionized' by Helio Ribeiro, there was a 1 hour show from 9:00 to 10:00 where Uruguayan DJ Alberto Moravi presented the best European pop music there was. Alberto Moravi had an espetacular collection of 45 rpms imported from various European countries and played them at his show. Moravi hardly spoke Portuguese so the Brazilian Speakers Union entered with a petition at the Ministry of Communications (whatever its name was then) to have a ban imposed on him. The ban came and Alberto Moravi's show which was the best thing possible for the fans of rock & pop music was axed for ever.

By August 1965Helio Ribeiro had already left Radio Tupi and went to Radio Panamericana to do his revolution there too.

The article on the right about the popularity of Luiz Vieira, is written by Mario Julio, Revista do Radio's man in São Paulo.
