John Allen's website    

I'm sorry, you have tried to access a page on my site which does not exist. This could be for one of three reasons:

  • You typed a URL incorrectly
  • It was linked from elsewhere on my site and I have got it wrong, if this is the case please e-mail me so that I can put it right
  • You were linked to here from another site which had an incorrect or out of date URL, in this case please contact the webmaster of that site

However you arrived here, please have a look around the site.



This site has pages on the radio stations that I have been involved in from university days in the mid-1970's until I moved on to other things in 1994. The pages contain period audio and quite a few pictures:

I have recently changed the audio from Real format, which required Real player, to use Flash in line with general practice which regretably, due to Apple's restrictive practices, will not currently play on their mobile devices such as iPads and iPhones.
