          I just wished that we had today's technology in the 1970s and 1980s - could it have been possible to listed to a Southampton based local radio station if you were in Nottingham in the pre-internet days? Of course not.

          And of course the independent radio stations were so individual - that was until Heart, Captial and Global took most of them over.
          Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

            Hello guys, some great memories here. I wonder if anyone can help me with this picture, please? I can't remember where I found it online but I recall that these three girls won a Fab 208 'Dream Come True' competition to spend a day with The Goodies. I'm hoping to find the actual issue of Fab 208 magazine this photo appeared in, and maybe there would be a story with it, too. Thanks if you can help.

              Here in the north east , Metro Radio started up in the early 70s and as a commercial station ,was a novelty.
              I found myself taping the adverts rather than the pop songs and I recall listening to Night owls with James Whale chuckling to some of the crazies that phoned in.

              Alan robson took over the talk in mantle but was booted out when Bauer radio took ownership and syndicated all the programming.

                Get to those phones! There were some loonies that phoned Night Owls.

                Can you remember Mr Rahman, next to the motorbike shops?

                  Does anyone remember Jeremy Beadle doing a Sunday night show on some of the independent local radio stations circa 1986-1987? I think it came from LBC and the stations either took one, two or all three hours of it. I think Beadle was sacked just a few months after starting the show. Many a tired person couldn't get up on Monday morning as a result.

                  He also did a similar programme when Talk Radio UK started up in 1995 as well.
