It may have been on 107.5 for 14 months now, but it's been "going" a lot longer than that....

I was saying this version because there was split with the original 87.5 man working with the innocence people .

I know what you were saying, but you're forgetting that it carried on 87.5 after they split and then went to 99.7 after Flex went off, so this version has been on 107.5 for 14 months, but they split up longer ago than that ....as you should know. :tup

I do remember 997 but didn't it last only 2 or 3 weeks and I thought the 875 guy was still with them but I don't know?

The short lived 997 raw was sometime in the summer of 2018 and I can remember how much weaker raw had become before they left 875 it was never one of my favourite stations otherwise I might have had a better memery of the events but it was practically my local strongest station

From wikipedia
The station launched as Active 107.5 FM and, after ten years of planning, went on air May 18th 1998, broadcasting to east London and in particular to the London Boroughs of Havering and Barking & Dagenham. Active FM played a mix of new and old pop music with an emphasis on soul and rhythm and blues; evening shows catered for specialist musical tastes covering genres including disco, garage and contemporary club music. The station had its own local news team which would broadcast from Studio 2.

The station was run out of Lambourne House, Romford and its transmitter was located on the roof.

Active FM was bought by UKRD Group which later ran the station as Soul City FM.

Time FM is the third name used by the station. It was adopted when the company was acquired by the London Media Company, a subdivision of the Sunrise Radio Group. In January 2014, Time 107.5 LTD entered administration, along with its sister stations, Time 106.6, Sunrise Radio and Kismat Radio. On 4 February 2014 they were acquired for an estimated £2m by Lyca Media II Ltd, a subdivision of Lycamobile.[2] The station has retained its branding as 'Time 107.5FM'.

Lyca have more money than sense if they paid £2m for those silly little local stations. Sunrise used to be a huge force in the Asian radio market, but they always had problems with "fingers in the till" and they never made money.

You are right Albert especially when time 106.6 was shut down only a year later in October 2015
