Monty Lister helps celebrate Radio Clatterbridge's 60th birthday

Sixty Years Young

One of the oldest radio stations in the country, Radio Clatterbridge is celebrating its 60th anniversary today with a series of special programmes. It all began on April 9th 1951 with a group of youngsters from the Port Sunlight Boys’ Club hauling a gramophone and a heavy pile of 78s around Pensby Ward. Since then, the charity has evolved into a full broadcast service for the health park. One of the station’s founders, broadcaster Monty Lister, joined a variety of special guests on a special edition of In The Mix ths morning. Presented by Dave Adams and Steve Lord, the programme talked about why the Beatles gave their first broadcast interview to Monty in 1962 and looked at other events in the station’s history.
