The City Sixty, 19th - 26th June 1966


Click on the individual pages above to see them enlarged.

This chart covers a fateful week in the history of Radio City, one in which the station was largely silent. Their base, Shivering Sands Fort, was raided by a boarding party after the station had closed down for the night on 19th June. The intruders forcibly kept the station off the air for a week during which time station boss Reg Calvert was shot dead. There is more about this tragic incident here. Radio City returned to the air at 10pm on 26th June.
