Des O'Gonner

Des O'Gonner Radio Clatterbridge has come to the rescue of council chiefs who needed help launching a super recycling bin. Liverpool City Council was looking for embarrassing records to help with a photo opportunity for the new bring bank. The station helped out by digging out a couple of Des O’Connor’s LP’s from its extensive album collection. Programme Controller Paul Johnston said: “We’ve got thousands of records covering every single musical style and taste, and were happy to dust down our vintage vinyl and help out!” And fans of Des at Clatterbridge Hospital needn’t worry – the LP’s weren’t actually placed in the recycling bin and are safely back in the radio station’s record library!
