Stamps to celebrate golden anniversary of nation's station

 

The 50th anniversary of Manx Radio is being celebrated with a set of eight special stamps issued by the Isle of Man Post Office.

The stamps feature popular presenters and memorable moments in the nation's station's half century.

Images include the one-time 'voice of TT' Peter Kneale at the Grandstand, Jim Caine presenting his popular Sweet 'n' Swing jazz show, along with pictures reflecting the range of local news and events broadcast by Manx Radio.

The broadcaster's landmark birthday is among diverse themes chosen for the special stamp issues this year, including the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WW1, artist Archibald Knox and the Island of Culture. 

Sarah Read from Isle of Man Post Office says it's a milestone worth marking:
