The Book

NewsPosted by Stephen Butt Mon, March 20, 2017 17:03:25
A group of former BBC Radio Leicester staff is helping me to write a book to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the station and of BBC Local Radio.

The main chapter headings will be:

Preparation (before Day One)
Programmes
Progress
Pioneering
Projects
People



For the People chapter, we're looking for short memories, comments and anecdotes from listeners, former staff and present staff. This will be a major aspect of the book and will bring a really human element to the publication.

We would value your contributions. Please post them here on this blog, or email to contact@stephen butt.co.uk.

Very many thanks.
