Beacon's birthday celebrations

Shropshire's 103.1 Beacon Radio is celebrating 20 years of being on air this weekend. The GCap Media owned radio station launched on 14th July 1987, and to commemorate the stations birthday, Beacon will be springing 1 or 2 surprises on listeners all day.

Beverley Knight and Lemar will be performing for a special concert in the heart of the county on Saturday night at the Quarry in Shrewsbury, whilst from 1pm on Shropshire's Beacon Radio, drive presenter Stu Haycock will be playing out the 20 Best.

Stu's really excited by the birthday celebrations, and can't wait to get stuck into the 20 Best lists, he told "Over the last 6 months, our listeners have been voting on their favourite 20 Best lists, so from 1pm on Saturday we're playing out all the songs from our definitive lists, including the 20 Best One hit wonders, teenage Crushes, handbag hits and summer party tunes!…in other words I get to play the likes of New kids on the block, Bros, Sonia, Take That, Sabrina! We've got one or two surprises to coincide with our birthday, and after 20 years on air, Beacon is coming of age. We're growing out of our teen years and maturing!"

Shropshire's Beacon Radio will also be broadcasting live from the Quarry on Saturday night for the concert with breakfast presenters Ryan and Di, and when listeners are driving away from the gig, Jon Wyer will be presenting a special Shropshire Party til' late!
