  • Hi Chris

    Thanks for that information – I’ve added it into the original post.


  • Hi, I had just joined Radio Birmingham at 18. I am on the photo as Claire McCLoud but was Claire Pilson then. How young!!!
    It was a really fun day, handing out stickers and badges and even signing the odd autograph book!
    The t-shirt would have made a nice keepsake.
