This web site has been online for over TEN YEARS now - which means it is now not far off THIRTY YEARS since James did his 1986-1990 spell of broadcasting that this site is celebrating. I wonder if the William Hulme Grammar School computer room is changed much since those days...
Update: 23 October 2014 - Err yes I am still here. I have made a minor amendment to The BBC GMR Story page. I have also noticed that some of the older links are now gone, so I will dig around the Wayback Machine and see if I can find an archive of them.
Update: 18 December 2013 - Added to Unofficial Recordings page a new short clip from late June 1986 of Ashley Reece and Andrew Haffner's first call to the programme. The exact date of the show it is from is not known. Also added two new jingles to The Jingles page.
Update: 15 December 2013 - Spotted that the links on The BBC GMR Story page were both no longer active, so found alternative URLs for both and re-worded the page slightly.
