Kingston City Radio

Found in my box of ‘miscellaneous radio stuff’ was this flyer for an RSL in Hull called Kingston City Radio. There’s no date but I’m assuming it’s from the early 1990s - sometime after the 1990 Broadcasting Act and before the extra ’1’ was added to area phone codes in 1995. Can you date it?

There are some familiar names: Tim Finlay was an early Viking Radio recruit and had kicked things off on the Yorkshire Radio Network; Carl Kingston was well known in the area to Radio Humberside and Viking Radio listeners; Chris Bell was also on Humberside; Tom Robinson is, I assume, the Tom Robinson from the hospital radio service Kingstown Radio; and of course, Charles White aka Dr Rock was also a regular contributor on Radio Humberside and is still doing his thing on Radio York.

Yorkshire Coast Radio's Barry Robinson on there too. Nick Hull's on the list - wasn't he a Humberside news bod?

That was 1994, I chaired it. It's my PO Box 12 address (still used for my radio work). Didn't bud for the Licence in the end as I was working oversea by then
