The Centre for Broadcasting History Research, in association with the British Universities Film and Video Council, is developing an online audio archive of UK commercial radio, from 1973 to 1992. Work produced before the Broadcasting Act 1990 represents a different ethos to the role commercial radio played, and subsequently,continues to play, in the UK. The change in commercial radio since this period is extraordinary. It is impossible for the young student of radio, born since this time, to imagine that such independently funded radio could have existed. As a result, it is vitally important that these programmes be preserved, as part of the evolving history of post-war British broadcasting.
