1970's (Pirate Era)
A new licence for the Surbiton area of South West London was advertised by the Radio Authority with several applications received. They would award the licence to Thames FM.
The service was sold to the Local Radio Company in 2001.
RADIO JACKIE (Legal Era)
Even the Local Radio Company had to concede and sold the licence to the former pirate (who had originally applied for the FM licence).
