Welcome to the 1Radio archive
In 2008, I launched 1Radio, an internet-based radio station that anyone could be a part of.
1Radio was on the air for about five years. It was a fantastic community and something I am still very proud of. It brought together a mix of people from around the world and helped forge some great friendships.
The station closed at the end of 2013. During the final week, I had the idea to write a book about the experience and recall some of the people, shows, fun times, technical challenges and other memories.
I self-published the book on Amazon. I promoted it briefly on the 1radio.org domain but mostly left it to be discovered. It sold around fifty copies. Three or four were bought by former 1Radio presenters but most were picked up by strangers. I updated the book in 2018 on the 10th anniversary of starting the station. This sold a few more copies.
This website retells the story of 1Radio through excerpts from that book. I am posting these online for the first time. I may also write some new posts. Who knows?
Whether you were part of the 1Radio team, were a listener or you have landed here by chance, welcome to the 1Radio Archive. Feel free to add your comments to any of the posts.
