Radio WM relaunch – 1981 article by Nick Higham


 Thanks to Tim Manning for making this article by Nick Higham (now BBC News correspondent) available.

The article is taken from ‘Radio Month’ in November 1981, and talks about the relaunching of Radio Birmingham as Radio WM. ¬†The station’s frequency was changed to improve reception sound quality, especially in Birmingham, and the schedule was revamped and streamlined.

Tim Manning was responsible for the publicity and promotion of the station, as well as presenting on Saturday mornings.
