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 Musician's Union band 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. Producer Francis Essex claimed at the time never
to have seen Oh Boy! the show Dig This was meant to compete with. Complaints about
the show seemed to suggest that it was big on noise, but low on energy and failing
to attract the kind of rock and roll names in favour of Light Programme fare. However,
it must have proved successful as it was announced in late February that the original
thirteen week run was to be extended until the end of June. However, sense prevailed
and it was taken off the air in late March.
