Merseybeat
As a teenager I listened to Radio Luxembourg, the American Forces
Network and Radio Caroline. However, the first professional Radio
shows I presented were at BBC Radio Merseyside. I had been a
member of the Cavern and the Iron Door Clubs in Liverpool, then I was
a DJ and compere around Merseyside.  I have set myself the task of
getting as many Merseybeat memories as possible by getting in touch
with the people who were connected to Merseybeat. There is no order
of importance!
