As they were

When I was a student at Durham, I was able to listen not only to Radio Durham but also Radio Teeside and Radio Newcastle. Teeside had the edge in my opinion (but I was still a teenager then!).

This is a photograph from the website of the great country presenter Stan Laundon and marks the date of the change of name from Radio Teeside to Radio Cleveland.

There are two faces which have very close connections with BBC Radio Leicester. On the back row is the late Ian Judson who was to serve as Manager of BBC Radio Leicester after Tony Inchley and before Jeremy Robinson. At the front is John Watson, one of the early news team, and sometime acting News Editor at Leicester.
