It all started many years ago in the 80s..Building FM transmitters that ran on a vfo(variable frequency oscillator)This basically means any fluctuation in temperature and the Transmitter would drift.We didnt care as long as we got on the air.Then came the question of listener interaction...Phone was the only option in the early days,so this meant putting out a loop tape with a phone box telephone number for listeners to call.Sitting outside a phone box and waiting for it to ring,at the same time checking to see how far we had drifted ...Bloody hard work!!
Some frustrating times passed until i met up with Ian Lawrence and Chris Kerry,who had heard my station and were curious..These kind gentlemen showed me the ropes.I started doing programs for "Castle Radio" I didnt know at this time that this was to be the beginning of greater things.I was introduced to a top bloke called "Gadget" (RIP)..He had a big rig and a "proper " studio..He told me about a company called "veronica fm" and said i could purchase a decent 1 watt "Veronica Exciter"(My dad said it sounded more like a sex aid!!)
I purchased this and buzzfm was then launched.(circa 92).Reaching a bigger audience and no significant drift!!.. I was also invited to work on one of gadgets stations "Pulse 107".Here i met a lot of great blokes "Stewart King".."Dave Dickinson"..Bill Lewis" "Steve Gregson"..Tony Anderson"..(APOLOGIES FOR ALL THE NAME DROPPING) :)To name a few.
Four of us whilst working on "gadgets" station went off on our own to form the "Free radio Network(FRN)..Four stations linking up via radio " Centre Radio,Castle Radio,City Fm, and my own buzzfm"..circa 93-97..Great days before the advent of the internet,we all had "1G" analogue mobile phones..We had no idea that these days were to be the best days of (Our)my radio career/s..We became very popular and "pissed off" the then ILR stations,sometimes getting over 100 phone calls in the space of our regular Thursday night 3 hour "Link ups"(programs)..To cut a very long story short In November 97 I got raided (Big time!!!)...We didnt dare transmit from our homes again and started doing outside transmissions from local hills,although great fun at the time,a lot of hassle as non of us had PLL rigs and power supplies from cars were unreliable..These OB`s dwindled and came to an end..FRN was no more..
So now in the year 2019 me having very fond memories of those days,have decieded to use modern technology to start up this station...Not on FM..;)...There will be links on this site to recordings of the old days.
To summarise:-Great days,great blokes,excellent memories..
