Bill Haley

Documenting Our Past

Bill Haley Radio Clatterbridge has broadcast a special programme documenting the station’s illustrious history. The Radio Clatterbridge Story was researched and presented by Andy Bonner to mark the charity’s 60th anniversary. It features many long-unheard clips of archive loaned to the station by various former presenters. The documentary also contains the first-known recording of the service – a 1954 feature called the Clatterbridge Chronicle and talks about how stars from Bill Haley and Eddie Cochrane to Kenny Everett and Jimmy Saville made their mark on the station. The programme will be repeated throughout the anniversary year.
