    I was shocked to hear “valley´s radio” had stopped broadcasting.
    when I lived in Ebbw vale , it was the only station I would listen to.
    I took part in a “Bg brother” type competition about 3 yrs ago.
    I had to spend a week in a caravan. the staff of the station were the ncest people you would like to meet.
    I am saddened by the demise of the station, it will be a big loss to the area that is already strugglying with the depression.
    thanks to all of the staff for a great era that will sadly be lost to the people of South Wales.
    RIP valleys radio.
