Former employees of Plymouth Sound are getting together to unofficially celebrate the station’s 40th birthday with a special evening reunion.
The event will be held in the city in May and organisers are calling for anyone who worked at the station from 1975 until 2009 – just before it changed to Heart and moved to Exeter – to get in touch.
They are being encouraged to share their photographs and memories of being part of the city institution on a special anniversary website.
They are also looking to find a very special person who played a big role in the first day’s broadcast. The cries of the ‘Plymouth Sound Baby’ – the first baby born in the city on 19 May 1975 – were heard during the very first programme. Matthew Miller was born at 4.50am at Freedom Fields Hospital to mum Marlene Miller, weighing in at 7lbs 13oz. The organizers of the reunion are keen to hear from him to make sure he is there to celebrate on the night.
