NORTH EAST MANCHESTER LICENCE

This section covers a selection of material gathered together in the lead up to the announcement of the successful winners in the North East Manchester Radio Licence, I have decided to no longer update this section due as any further coverage will be merely duplicating the two stations publicity material.

If you are interested in the developments and issuing of new radio Licences you should keep your eye on The Radio Magazine Web Site. If this isn't your scene then you can jump back to my Radio Page.

Particularly of interest to me is the 'Small Scale Alternative Location Licence', originally planned for advertisement in October 1997, but postponed by the Radio Authority and advertised in January 1998. The deadline for applications was May 12th 1998, and the successful applicants were announced on September 3rd 1998. Since April 1997 I have brought together a collection of information on this subject.

As regular readers of this page will know the page had grown very large (over 100K!) Therefore for easier reference I have spilt the information into several sections. Follow the links in the table of contents below, also listed is the dates each article was added to the site. If you wish you could download and save to disk this page (102k) containing all the articles to read at your leisure off line.
