Manx Radio marks 50 years of broadcasting

The team at Manx Radio are starting the celebrations for the station’s 50th birthday today, heading towards its landmark anniversary next year.

The Isle of Man station is the longest running commercial radio station in the British Isles with its first ever broadcast on June 7th 1964 and was officially opened on 23rd November of the same year.

John Marsom, Business Director said: “Manx Radio celebrating its 50th anniversary is a terrific milestone in broadcasting history. No one could have imagined back in 1964 how communication would have advanced over the following 50 years.

“Today’s Facebook will allow everyone to ‘join the celebrations’ with memories, pictures, audio and conversation. This will leave a tremendous legacy for the station, the listeners and the Island.”
