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 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. BBC Radio Manchester launched at 6 am on 10 September 1970 as the first local radio station 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. The 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 and 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 which often repeated interviews from “Midway through the Day”. (Wikipedia).
