MERSEYSIDE FREE RADIO: This station began broadcasts on 1242kHz in early December 1982.  It appeared to be an re-incarnation of the old Station J1000, which had continued with Andy Davies on the FM band only during 1982.  The station was initially called D.B.C. (was this short for the 'Davis Broadcasting Company'?, after its operator Andy Davis), but the following week deejays just referred to it as 'free radio on AM and FM'.  Frequencies were announced as 241 metres on AM and 97.6MHz FM in stereo.    Eventually the station began announcing as Merseyside Free Radio.   M.F.R. had several well known jocks on from the time including Kevin Hall, Steven Bishop and Andy Davis and pumped out a massive signal across the North West.

 

 

December 1982 When Merseyside Free Radio first began broadcasts, the station didn't announce a name.  This extract was from their second week on the air on medium wave and features the end of Kevin Hall's show up to mid-day, followed by the start of Steven Bishop. (File size = k)
