Radio 210 Hits and Memories

Hello, and welcome to the Radio 210 website. This will evolve to be a lasting memory and resource for Radio 210. To hear clips and shows from the station, please click the following link to visit our Mixcloud page, with many more clips to be added, currently ranging from the mid 1980's to late 1990's.

*** Request*** I'm looking to start a podcast over the coming weeks, interviewing presenters from 210 about their time, memories and stories while at 210 - if you presented on 210 Thames Valley, Radio 210, 210fm, 2-Ten fm, or 210 Classic Gold and would like to take part, please e-mail me at 210thamesvalley@gmail.com - we can either meet up or record via Skype, depending on logistics. We already have 3 presenters confirmed for this, and hopefully more to come.

Update 15th September 2019 - A complete re-upload of the photos from Stephen Stewart, due to some duplicates, and now the full 207 photos uploaded - over 100 not added before:-

With the sad news that the Calcot studios are to fall silent later this year, I hope to add more content to this site over the coming weeks as a fitting tribute and memory.
