Radio revival sees old favourites return to the airwaves

Phil with his wife Dhel

A radio revival has seen a pair of familiar favourites return to Radio Clatterbridge.

Two old names are back on the Radio Clatterbridge schedule after an absence of decades.

Comeback kid Phil Price gets his own programme on Friday nights - nearly half a century after first appearing on the station.

Phil as a DJ in the 1970s

Phil originally joined the station in 1973 as part of the first regular weekend line-up.

He still remembers presenting The Saturday Variety Show, a mixture of music popular at the time, for a number of years.

"I joined Radio Clatterbridge again because I really love radio! I also love music and wanted to play some of my favourite Northern Soul, Motown and 60s tracks." - Phil Price

He can now be heard hosting Live From The Bridge from 7pm each Friday.

Meanwhile, Jazz At The Bridge makes a welcome return to the airwaves.

The programme was a firm favourite with listeners when it was first aired in the 1990s presented by Vic Charles.

The hour-long show has been resurrected by Andy Bonner for the specialist music strand Radio Clatterbridge Presents.
