Andy is no stranger to Coventry and has been
editing the "Coventry
the magazine which specilises in helping young people. He's also worked for the
Evening Telegraph and newspapers in the Sheffield area.
recollections: I've just listened to Gordon Astley's first
words - which I heard in the boardroom of Mercia
that morning as we all stood holding Champaign glasses (except Gordon, of course,
Mike Henfield, who was waiting to read the first news bulletin).
Gary was a journalist with the Solihull News
before joining a news agency
in Stoke-on-Trent. He particularly enjoys covering sport.
Peter will already be
known to many people in Warwickshire as he was
previously in the Leamington office of the Evening Mail.
He's also worked for a big news agency based in Birmingham.
Kay has had her own
award-winning hospital radio show in Middlesex, and
has worked for evening and weekly papers in the London area.
Another Midlander, Alan was with
West Midlands Press group
before coming to Mercia Sound.
recollections: My god....almost 22 years since The Mercia went on air.
And some of us STILL believe in radio.
This REALLY is sad-anorakism of the first degree but congrats!!
