Roberts' Island Discs

Roberts' Island Discs Coffee Club presenter John Roberts has been waxing lyrical about Radio Clatterbridge to listeners in the Isle of Man. The charity has always had a strong connection with the island, ever since local cancer patients were treated at Clatterbridge. Manx Radio stalwart Bernie Quayle is a recent Radio Clatterbridge listener, having received treatment at Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology. So John thought it would be a good idea to pay a visit to their studios in Douglas. He told presenter John Hines all about the station and our plans to broadcast on AM later this year. Both Johns now hope to arrange a reciprocal visit to Clatterbridge at some point in the future.
