It's time to have another nostalgia trip, this time back to 1975 and 1978 with four commercial breaks thanks again to Neil Siddaway of Middlesbrough, Teesside. Neil has lovingly taped programmes, jingles and commercial breaks from the station and most importantly has kept them all this time, and has indeed built up a superb audio archive!

Enjoy these advertisements and if you have any material you would like to share via the Metro Radio 261MW 97VHF Tribute Website, no matter what the quality (we have ways of digitally cleaning it up!), then please don't hesitate this friendly historical website. We are starting to gain thousands of visitors many of whom are listeners and former presenters, and any material you possess I'm sure would bring nostalgic memories flooding back!

Submitting material couldn't be easier either via e-mail attachment, a free file hosting service or by post. To submit audio visual material and/or your memories or for inquiries, please contact the site here

Many thanks,
