KCR 106.7 says goodbye after 4 years serving Merseyside

Just half-way through it’s broadcast licence, KCR 106.7 said goodbye at 10pm last night, Friday April 8th 2005. Presenter Steve James talked about the end of KCR, and promoted the fact that a new radio station name will be launching on the same frequency on April 18th.

After 10pm the music continued after IRN with the KCR station voice-over announcing a new station is coming. Station adverts continue, and as required by licence agreement, local and national news will continue.

From April 18th, new owners The Local Radio Company will launched 106.7 The Rocket and broadcast the group-wide format of “MusicFunLife” across Merseyside. The new station will keep most of the regular daytime presentation team and in addition has hired a new News Editor and recruited an entire sales team. The FM signal can be heard across most of Merseyside and into parts of West Lancashire and Greater Manchester.

106.7 The Rocket will launch at 8am on Monday 18th April 2005.
