1Radio Forever

To mark the end of 1Radio, our final show was a farewell from all of our presenters and DJs.

Presenter Shawn Christy, aka Espy, produced the show after bagging the final slot on the final day of 1Radio.

The show featured contributions from presenters and listeners interspersed with Espy's own inimitable choice of tunes. It was broadcast on New Year's Eve, 2013 and ended at the stroke of midnight.

From there on, 1Radio was no more.

Listen to this landmark final show and be reminded of our final crop of presenters and their memories of being "on the one". 

And as you listen to the show, scroll through the shoutbox from that final hour and see what folk had to say as the programme played out...

1R: Thank you so much for being a supportive part of this family. Like a microcosm of 1Radio itself, tonight's show was constructed from the contributions of many wonderful individuals.

Hi Tim Hope your well. What are you doing now in radio? I had a great time on 1radio. I moved to different stations after you closed 1radio but none had the great platform you provided to the presenters. Stopped doing it now I do the odd show on the staion my mom presents on but if you ever bought 1radio back id be there like a shot lol take care Ian
