Radio Stories

Radio Stories is a series of interviews with Radio Personalities from the Wolverhampton area.

Originally conceived in the form of a documentary for Big Centre, following a special anniversary weekend to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Beacon Radio in which many former presenters reunited for a weekend of retro programming on Wolverhampton’s 101.8 WCRfm.

Sadly Big Centre changed ownership before the documentary could be finally produced and the new owners made it clear that they were interested only in Birmingham-centric material. Nevertheless, all of the recorded footage was retained and eventually developed into this series of mini-programmes, with each one focusing on one presenter or team.

This series began with an additional ‘special’ pilot episode with Jim Duncan, who was celebrating his own 40th Anniversary in 2018. The series then continued in Spring 2020 with the original interviews.
