Next month we celebrate yet another anniversary. On June 6th it will be 53 years since we made our first broadcast down a wire. We've almost exhausted ways of celebrating, but this year we've dug out some first or early episodes of popular programmes. So tune in on June 6th for a Sequent Sounds from 1985, the very first Lively Lounge from 2005, John Cavanagh's very first programme on the station, John Cavanagh's Album Show; the first episode of Darius Darque, Supernatural Detective, the very first Nothing But The Best from 1978 along with a rare repeat of our fiftieth anniversary special, The Big Birthday Card broadcast in 2013 and featuring a huge cast of presenters old and new. Details in the June issue of Radio News which is available here and of course in the schedule pages here on the website a week in advance.
