This version of Tower Radio consisted of a number of test transmissions made by Bert Williams during 1990 on 1161kHz, announced as 259 metres. The signal was very good, but the promised full time broadcasts are not thought to have commenced. A few years later tests were also heard on FM. The station did eventually seem to operate regularly but in 2005.

 

1990_05_07_mon_tower_1161am_bertwilliams_with_test-gh881.mp3 New Dec 2021 This test transmission by Bert Williams is mainly continuous oldies with the odd announcement. It was an interesting choice of frequency considering that Piccadilly was on the next channel.  This recording was made near Blackpool from 1161kHz, announced as 259 metres. 88MB
1998_11_24_thu_tower_1062fm_1800-1930_stevebishop-gh.mp3 New Dec 2021 Yet another test transmission but from several years later and on 106.2MHz FM. Steve Bishop hosts this Christmas Eve test from approximately 6pm onwards, although announces it as a 'dummy run'.  This recording was made near Blackpool from 106.2MHz, and has a few crackles on it, but not bad for the distance. 129MB
