This was a bit of news recently the 1548 AM frequency went off the air having been the home of Radio City in various incarnations since 1974, Radio City the original, City Talk the first time, City Gold, Magic 1548 and then Radio City Talk. It has also been the place where the Pete Price phone-in could be heard.
Pete has been off air since late March and now won't even be allowed to Greatest Hits in the North West & North Wales.

At roughly the same time as this Bauer announced that many, if not most of the stations it acquired over a year ago would be rebranded to expand the Greatest Hits network massively, in the North West, Wire. Wish, Tower & Wave Blackpool are all set to become GHR. Signal 107 covering Oswestry and most of Shropshire & the Black Country is also set to become GHR. Signal 1 & Pulse 1 will be part of the Hits Radio network but like most others in the network so far are retaining their names but are only set to have a local breakfast show, Lincs FM & Pirate FM in Cornwall are to be at first left alone.
