Piccadilly Radio 261


Piccadilly was the pioneering and fearless radio station which launched the careers of national personalities such as Chris Evans, Timmy Mallett, Gary Davis, Mark Radcliffe, Andy Crane, Steve Penk and Andy Peebles, plus a host of journalists , TV and film producers, businessmen and women and entrepreneurs.

At the same time, it discovered and nurtured local personalities who had never worked in radio before such as Susie Mathis, Phil Wood, Dave Ward, Mike Shaft, James Stannage, Mike Sweeney, Becky Want, James H Reeve and Stu Allan. They all became a huge part of listeners’ daily lives.

This site has been put together by former members of the radio station, and is run not-for-profit.  Please enjoy plenty of memories from the great days of Piccadilly Radio and to hear of news of an exciting special AUDIO version of the Piccadilly story featuring the voices from the station.  Please click around the menu to enjoy nostalgic photos, memorabilia, learn how to listen to the audio story and you can even buy an original design Piccadilly 1974 T-shirt!    Thank you for visiting.
