Online station Solid Gold GEM AM closes after two years
Solid Gold GEM AM, home of a number of former commercial radio managers and presenters, is closing down this weekend.
The station, which has just celebrated two years of broadcasting by announcing three new presenters, will cease online streaming at midnight Sunday.
The commercial-free station has been talk of radio enthusiasts due to its name – taken from a former ILR in the East Midlands – and promotion of its slogan “radio like it used to be”. Presenters included Len Groat, Jenni Costello, Andy Marriott and Tony Mullins.
A post has been made on its website which says: “Sadly, this Sunday will be the last day of Solid Gold GEM AM – thank you for listening for the last 2 years.”
