Radio 252 was a station operated by Bert Williams around 1978 and 1979 on 1197kHz, and was the precursor to Merseyland Alternative Radio which commenced broadcast in October 1979. After Bert had parted company with MAR, the name was heard again on some test transmission during mid 1981. It is thought they were abandonned and instead Bert concentrated on a new station, Liverpool Broadcasting which was first heard in August 1981.
