80s pirate is back as legal station

A popular pirate radio station from the 1980s era in Bradford (West Yorkshire) is making a comeback - but this time it's going legal. 

Two original DJs from PCR (Paradise City Radio) are behind the new-sound People's City Radio, going on air on the web. 

From an idea sketched out on the back of a cigarette packet four weeks ago, PCR's resurrection has been "astronomical," says Marvyn Browning, 39, who was just 15 and supposedly swatting for exams when he used to DJ for the old station from a friend's flat in Green Lane, Manningham, telling his mother he was stopping out at his sister's. 

The new PCR is already up and running, it is on seven days a week and already has 22 live shows. The rest is on a loop and the station has signed up DJs not just from Bradford but Manchester, London, Belgium, Serbia and The Bronx in New York.
