六七十年代的港澳電台節目序曲

上世紀六十年代居住於港澳地區的普羅大眾,在還未有免費可供收看的無線制式電視頻道出現前,就一如當時身處澳門接受初階程度教育的筆者般,收聽廣播電台節目成了大家工餘或課餘外生活的一主要部份。在昔日的歲月裡,選擇收聽某個電台或其某個節目,家中年幼成員基本上是沒有任何話事權的,長輩們愛聽甚麼,小孩們就要聽甚麼。以筆者而言,儘管那些往昔從偶然或非自願性渠道收聽回來的節目內容,絕大部份已記憶不起了;惟其某些細小環節部份,時至今天卻竟變成了筆者腦海中一些不能磨滅的美好回憶,而這也就是本次的貼文話題所在,一些於六十年代中期至七十年代中期、被香港商業電台及澳門綠邨電台選用作為節目開場、中段或終結序曲的原歐西樂曲.......



商業電台

六十年代期間還是位小學生的筆者,每天中午下課後,都是和姊弟們一起往位處學校附近的外婆家中吃午飯。每當我們踏進她家門時,那刻傳到耳朵內的聲音,往往恰巧地就是一段廣播劇節目的完結序曲,一支來自已故著名音樂指揮大師Mantovani編纂的"Jamaican Rumba",而該劇也就是由昔日廣播界名宿李我先生主播的「天空小說」。




其後由李我妻子蕭湘於同一時段主播的中篇「倫理小說」,其劇集序曲則換上了一首來自西片【紅磨坊之戀】中的音樂插曲"The Song From Moulin Rouge"。



來到下午其黄昏時份離開校門時,附近的民居總又是傳出了一陣陣由何詠琴姐姐主播的「兒童節目」序曲,如筆者的記憶力沒有出錯,那應就是另一首原自Mantovani編曲的"Swedish Rhapsody"。



回到家裡的晚上,專責照顧筆者及姊弟們的姨母,是當年商台另一受歡迎廣播劇節目「大丈夫日記」的忠實聽眾,其選自德國著名樂團指揮Bert Kaempfert原作的序曲"The Happy Trumpeter",自此也很自然地深深烙在往後筆者的腦海中。



綠邨電台

七十年代初剛進入中學的筆者,開始迷上了收聽歐西流行歌曲,但因當時在澳的居所位置,接收從港方電台傳來的聲响效果不知為何忽然變差,故很無奈地唯有選擇改聽本土的綠邨電台。記憶中,綠邨電台於每週一至五的下午五時,皆有一播放歐西流行歌曲的節目;雖然筆者早已忘掉了該節目名稱,惟猶可記得其序曲就是原自Ken Griffin演奏版本的"Cuckoo Waltz"。






而每逢週日中午,該台還有一特別的歐西流行歌曲點播節目:「Weekday Special, Weekday Request」,文翰是節目的主播,序曲則選自著名搖滾樂組合Cream於1968年的大作"Sunshine Of Your Love"。

筆者已故的父親,過往是一標準的賽狗迷及博彩者,每屆週六及週日晚上賽事開始前的下午四時許,他必然扭開了收音機,全神貫注地收聽由綠邨電台播放的「賽前狗隻最後磅重報告及賽事結果預測」節目。在其約一個半小時的節目過程中,加插了不少連串原自歐美的進行式(March)風格樂曲,充作節目的當然序曲,這包括了"Alte Kameraden"、"The Thunderer"、"Semper Fidelis"、"Anchors Aweigh"、"Stars And Stripes Forever"及"Under The Double Eagle等。其實這些曲名,對於一些年齡超逾四十的港澳六七十年代西片影迷朋友來說,相信可能是絕不陌生的,因為當年不少專門放映西片的戲院,散場時院內的揚聲器,都會慣常地播出該些進行曲一直至所有觀眾已全數離場。













最後一首可記回被用作節目序曲的樂曲,亦是筆者最為熟悉的,就是原自Gioachino Rossini之作品及於當年直播現場澳門回力球比賽過程前出現的"William Tell Overture (Finale)"。

附記:無線電視(HK-TVB)於1967年11月下旬啟播後,其在翡翠台首個自製的半小時實況劇集「太平山下」,也是以一首西曲作節目序曲的,該首由Whistlin' Jack Smith演譯的樂曲,名字就是"I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman".....

Hi William,

Welcome to this blog and many thanks your visit...

Well, I must say that I did never listen to Judi Jim's Programme while she was in CR. It's because of that I was living in Macao in the 60's and listening to radio brocasting from HK side by that time unlike nowadays was often not so smooth due to poor receiving hardware in Macao. I recall that occasions of listening to CR were when my father wanted to listen to some live HK soccer matches brocasting but as I said before the receptions were usually bad...

Anyhow, I guess that the music you're referring to should be "Tabu", not "Taibu" as I know that the former was a very popular 60's hit, especially the version played by Terry Snyder & the All-Stars. From the youtube, I could find only one uploaded video which was played by Terry Snyder but it goes between 2 others "My Heart Belongs To Daddy" and "The Breeze And I". Here it is, from time interval starting 2:40 and ending 6:29.
