Listen to Radio Brockley Archives from 1996

Radio Brockley is celebrating it’s 51st birthday this week, and so we take a look back at some classic moments in the station’s history.

In 1996, four members took part in a Tube Run to raise funds for the station. It was actually the second time we had attempted this, as in 1990 Steve Atkins and Syd Jarvis attempted it. In 1996 there were four runners – Alan Joyce, Paul Joyce, Joe Lemer and Mandy Lester (then Segall). They caught the first train at Upminster at 5am and finished at Amersham around 1am the next morning.

At some of the changeovers, some recordings were made on our portable(ish!) UHER tape recorder. You can listen to some of the recordings here:
