Archive - A Nation's Station - part 07
Extracts from A Nation’s Station: the Story of Manx Radio, which was published by The Manx Experience as part of the celebrations marking Manx Radio’s fortieth anniversary.
In part seven after years of negotiations, Manx Radio finally gets a waveband – 188 – which, although not enough, is at least a beginning. Now it’s time to get proper studios, and explore the possibility of even a mobile studio – although that didn’t work out quite as well to begin with.
Written and read by Derek Winterbottom, it was broadcast in 2004.
