Eve Hill flats, Dudley DY1

Post by Citizen Nick » Thu Apr 29, 2021 1:26 pm

Three tower blocks back in the day capable of serving the West Midlands / Birmingham / Black Country area all in 1 go.
Massive blocks built on top of one of the very highest points in the Midlands.
Millfield Court, Prince of Wales Court, and Butterfield Court. These tower blocks were 19, 19 and 16 storeys high respectively.

Many stations have used this site, Freedom 102 FM and Exile Radio to name just a couple.

Thought this may be of interest to some of you.

Ah, the old freedom 102.. Craig Benson set up a freedom 102 in Sheffield around 1995 iirc.. I saw him in a flat on the tenth floor where a bloke from St Anne's in Bristol lived called Paul, big tubby bloke, Chris was short and chubby.. I ended up buying one of their old turntables off dj Nev Ryder! I think one of the lads involved used to be Involved with SCR in the early days "dj dangermouse" who actually had a station on in Bradford not long ago called unique fm or something like that..
