We're On Air!

We're On Air! Radio Clatterbridge finally went on air today - 60 years after the station was formed! Special guest Mike McCartney pressed the button to switch on our new AM transmitter. Chairman Steve Lord was the first voice to be heard on the new service as he thanked everyone involved in getting the station broadcasting. Guests from Wirral Hospitals NHS Trust, Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology, Clatterbridge Hospitals League of Friends, Claire House, St. John's Hospice, Elderholme, Wirral Neuro Rehab and sponsors Home Instead listened in during a reception at the station. One of Radio Clatterbridge's founding members, Monty Lister, joined Mike McCartney and presenter Andy Bonner in the studio for the first full programme. Steve Lord later returned to the airwaves with a series of outside broadcasts from around Clatterbridge Health Park. He interviewed fundraisers from CCO, Claire House and St. John's... along with the Matron. Steve even ended up in the bedrooms of two residents at Elderholme! Thanks to Steve Lord, Paul Johnston, Dave Adams, Andy Bonner, Neil Jackson, Ron Berkeley and Dave Berkeley who ensured the launch came together as planned.
