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Update: 15 December 2013 - Spotted that the links on The BBC GMR Story page were both no longer active, so found alternative URLs for both and re-worded the page slightly.

November 2013 - 11 months of silence, but I have now at last made a minor amendment to the Noctural Emissions page - adding proof that Piccadilly Radio used to broadcast on 97.0FM before 103.0 (not 97.3 as James H stated in 2005). Couple of minor typo fixes done. However I still have tons of audio to add to the site, so keep a look out throughout December for updates. For full details of recent updates, see the Site Updates page.


This Web site was created in 2004 to remember and relive the "old days" of Piccadilly Radio and in particular the late-1980s era of James's broadcasts.

If you have any memories of the programme, remember some long-forgotten correspondents, or any information that you can supply for the Web site, then please post a message on the Message Board.
