Default London 01 numbers

My friend has a demo recording tape with the London 01 number.

She says she got it in the Rheingold in Oxford street which is closed down.

Anyone, know when this was closed down?

Can anyone tell me when the London number was changed?

Not neccesarilly, could be talking about the London 01 area code, as
the subject says.
Either way, it's a bit of a vague question.

London changed from 01 to 071 and 081 on 6 May 1990, it wasn't *that* long ago!

Among others, see:- http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/2561459.stm

Which includes this comment:-

"I asked a knowledgable friend, who said: "Heh heh - well, I *could*
always add my 2 penn'orth and make the following points:

1) Saturday Superstore's number was ALWAYS 01-811 8055 as it ran from
1982- 1987, well before the 071/081 split and PhONEday.

2) Going Live (1987 - 1994) also used 01-811 8055 until the 071/081
split (on May 6th 1990), when they then switched to 081-811 8181.

3) 081-811 8181 was carried over to Live and Kicking in 1994 for part
of the first series, before PhONEday in 1995 when of course it then
changed to 0181- 811 8181 (it was sometime in March 1995, IIRC) and
they kept until the introduced their 0845-610 1515 number sometime in
the last 2 years of the programme.

4) If I were being *really* pedantic, Multi-Coloured Swap Shop's
ORIGINAL number (from the first series, 1976-1977) was actually 01-288
8055 - they only moved to the 01-811 8055 number in time for the
second series in 1977.

I COULD, but I won't "

Well, I was only 11 then so I can't really remember much before then
