soft background music with the occasional pops. Also a daily, half-hour
long business topics programme. "The Voice Of Business".
from an ex War Department tower on Red Sands outside of territorial
waters, Radio 390 had an extremely strong signal which meant it could be
picked up even in the most built up areas.
The station concentrated on
light, up tempo music aimed at providing a background for those at
home, out relaxing or in the car. 390 had a daily news, views and
discussions programme aimed at those in industry and commerce called
"The Voice of Business".
The station also hoped to start another station
in the North and had a ship outside Wirral Peninsula carrying out test
broadcasting.(DONT KNOW WHAT THE OUTCOME WAS)
