For two generations, our sector has delivered a popular mix of great entertainment and real public value at both local and national level – from the first broadcasts of LBC, Capital and Clyde in 1973 to Team Rock’s launch last week. Now is the time to recognise the key players and individuals which have contributed most to commercial radio’s continued success.”
