Radio Birmingham – ‘206’ relaunch




This is a report from the Sandwell Evening Mail in November 1980 about the re-branding of Radio Birmingham as “206”, and the tag line ‘Five Star Listening’.  According to the article the ‘five star’ could refer to the 5 main presenters, the five counties ‘206’ broadcast to, or to the quality of the station!  The article features a photo of Tim Manning, Radio Birmingham’s Community Relations Officer.

Thanks to Tim Manning for making the article available.
