BBC Radio Manchester is a BBC Local Radio station broadcasting to Greater Manchester and north east Cheshire in North West England from MediaCityUK in Salford Quays. It broadcasts on FM via a transmitter at Holme Moss, with a small repeater at Saddleworth that covers Tameside and Saddleworth. It can be heard on DAB radio and via internet streaming.
The station launched at 6 am on 10 September 1970 and was the first local radio station broadcasting in the city of Manchester. Initially broadcasting from studios at Piccadilly Gardens in the city centre, the station’s long-standing home was New Broadcasting House on Oxford Road.
Radio Manchester originally broadcast only on 206 metres on the AM medium wave band. First voice on air was Alan Sykes. Other presenters included Roy Cross, Sandra Chalmers, Mike Riddoch and Alex Greenhalgh. In the mid 1970s, Radio Manchester was notable for the “Midway Through The Day” programme which introduced strip programming and ran from lunchtime until 7 pm. Presenters changed throughout the day. It was the precursor of the now common chat and music format. At the same time Radio Manchester began an evening programme from 10 pm to midnight. This often repeated interviews from “Midway Through The Day”. (Wikipedia).
