BBC's Gillham plans RSL

BBC Local Radio presenter Tony Gillham's revealed plans to apply to Ofcom to run an RSL station from his home in Cambridgeshire. The "Gillham Gold" DJ presents a number of shows on various BBC local stations every weekend. Earlier this year we told you about locals complaining about the large [link=]erection[/link] in his garden.

Now it appears the reason for the 40ft mast at his home in Buckden, Cambs is to broadcast Black Cat Radio – a 4-week community RSL in the summer.

Tony, 56, told The Hunts Post that he and partner Judy would run the station: "We have the blessing of the BBC, and we want to bring a touch of quality radio to the area. We feel that Huntingdon and St Neots have been neglected. This will be a local programme for local people to have their say.

He added: "We are looking for people who would like to make programmes and also people who want to help out behind the scenes. Basically, it's for people who would like to have a go at radio but don't know where to start."

Tony currently presents a weekly retro show on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, as well as hosting programmes on BBC Radio Devon, BBC Somerset Sound, BBC Radio Oxford and BBC Radio Berkshire.
