Radio 210 Hits and Memories
...and so much more
Radio 210 45th Birthday - March 8th, 2021
- to mark 45 years since 210 hit the airwaves, we will be arranging an online reunion for 210 staff, and will also put together a special show online, with songs, jingles, ads, clips and messages.
Hello, and welcome to the Radio 210 website. The aim of this website is to be a lasting memory and resource for Radio 210. Many longer clips and full shows are on our Mixcloud page, with many more clips to be added, currently ranging from the very first broadcast (and test transmissions!), until the late 1990's. Please also check out our audio page for more clips.
We are also archiving anything 210 related, including photos, memorabilia, jingles, and anything else we can uncover.
As always, please e-mail if you have any recordings of any length or period of 210's history, or anything else at all we can add to the website. Please don't throw away anything to do with 210, it may well be a great addition to the archive.
We also feature the Radio 210 Voices of Your Life podcast, where we hear from the presenters and other colleagues at 210, about their memories and experiences while at the Calcot studios. Please get in touch if you worked there, and would like to take part.
Plus, here's a link to the Real Reading Podcast featuring a discussion of Radio 210 and a couple of jingles and ads (main conversation 20 minutes in):-
Remember, we are on Twitter @Radio2102 , please follow for updates and to contact if you have anything we can add to the website.

About Radio 210
Radio 210 was the Independent Local Radio station for Thames Valley and North Hampshire from its launch in 1976, until 2009 when it was rebranded as part of the Heart network.
Whether you listened in the early 210 Thames Valley days, or during the Closer To You Days, the Sounds Of Your Life Days, or towards the end as 210fm or 2-tenfm, we hope to include memories from the whole life of this much-missed station.
Much of the content on this site is with grateful thanks to kind individuals who have shared their photos, recordings, stories, memories and time.
This site is a fond look back at Radio 210, and is not connected with Radio 210, Heart or Global Radio in any way.
