When Bert Williams parted company with Merseyland Alternative Radio in June 1980, he went on to operate his own station, as he had done for many years before.  This time he named it Merseyside Music Radio.  It transmitted on 1170kHz and was announced as 259m.  Here are some recordings from September and October that year.  Bert did a 'live' documentary about the history of pirate radio on Merseyside and explained why he had decided to leave MAR.  The original documentary appeared to have gone out on 6th September 1980 as references were made to MAR being off the air that weekend due to staff holidays.  The recording here was a repeat from 5th October 1980.
