Fab 40 for Radio Sheffield

Listeners are being invited to come along and meet to BBC Radio Sheffield presenters at a special event to mark the station's 40th birthday. A special birthday evening will take place in Sheffield Hallam University tomorrow, Tuesday 30 October.

Managing Editor of Radio Sheffield Gary Keown explained the audience event is part of a whole host of special activities being staged by the station to celebrate its milestone birthday on 15 November.

He said: "We were actually the second BBC local radio station to go on air on 15 November — hot on the heels of BBC Radio Leicester. Obviously there have been huge changes not only at the station itself but in every part of our listener's lives over the last 40 years and our programming over the 40 days leading up to our birthday will reflect that."

Programmes across the output will include features on life beginning at 40, fashion at 40, lifestyle at 40, and will chronicle the past 40 years of South Yorkshire through the eyes of people aged 40 and over. The celebrations will culminate on Friday 16 November when Radio Sheffield will join Pudsey and BBC Look North presenters in switching on the Christmas lights in Meadowhall, Sheffield.
