Who remembers football reports on Radio Hallam?

Recommended Posts

Anyone remember Radio Hallam broadcasting Sheffield Wednesday reports in the days before they became Hallam FM and handed all the local sport to BBC Radio Sheffield?

Radio Hallam broadcasted on 194 medium wave from their offices in Hartshead in the City Centre (just next door to the Sheffield Star building), and local football was a way more important part of their brodcasting than it became later

He was really good

 

We’ve had some fantastic broadcasters in recent years. Paul Walker, Seth Bennett, Luke Whileman and Rob Staton were all outstanding imo. The current lot not so much

I did a bit of work at "The New Hallam FM" back in the day. Very dedicated team who loved their sport and loved providing the service.  A total lack of "expert" ex-player summarisers - the United guy was a retired teacher as I remember.

And Howard Pressman would have also been a 'press man' too just to mess with your mind a bit more

I’ve never rated Andy Giddings, Neil Buchan wasn’t great and the other 2 guys who do it now aren’t that great either
