Launched as a replacement for The Six-Five Special, with the Radio Times referring to it as "The Six-Five Show", playing on Saturdays from 6:05 to 6:30 pm.

The resident group were Bob Miller & The Millermen, while the host was ex-serviceman and Sandhurst Graduate Gary Marshall. It tried to copy Oh Boy! in terms of pace, but failed.
