Radio Clatterbridge could be transmitting its programmes over the airwaves for the first time in its history by the end of the year. That was the bold assessment by new Chairman Steve Lord as he presented an update on plans to broadcast on AM (or Medium Wave) at the charity's Annual General Meeting last night. The move is still subject to funding, licensing and planning permission but if all goes well, the station could be transmitting a signal some time in 2010. Radio Clatterbridge programmes are currently heard only through a hard-wired land line system at bedsides. A new on-site transmitter would mean that the charity could broadcast to every single person at Clatterbridge Health Park.
