4th April 1989 - BBC Wiltshire begins

BBC On the 4th April 1989 BBC Wiltshire Sound began broadcasting across the whole of Wiltshire. The first record played was, appropriately enough, ‘We’ve only just begun’ by The Carpenters[1].

The station was called ‘BBC Wiltshire Sound’ rather than ‘BBC Wiltshire’ because at the time the name ‘Wiltshire Radio’ was owned by someone else.
