So you've enjoyed the sights and sounds of Metro Radio 261MW 97VHF in the seventies and eighties, the Independent Local Radio (ILR) service for the Tyne/Wear area, thanks to the North East Sound Tribute website.

But Metro Radio was just one of the original tranche of nineteen ILR stations originally licenced by the Independent Broadcasting Authority. What about the rest of the network? Are there any similar 'independent' tribute websites for those other stations providing multimedia, artwork, jingles and programme downloads just like the Metro Radio 261MW 97VHF Tribute website.

Well, the good news is "yes". That means we can take a virtual tour of UK radio-land in the seventies and see what's available on the internet, starting in Northern Ireland. You may even be able to compare and contrast the output of these original stations with that of Metro Radio.

Simply click the ILR station logo to visit its tribute website, or, if an alternative site exists, click the ILR station name below. Enjoy!
