Herts Local Radio

Welcome to the H.L.R online resource

"Keep playing those Hot Hits" - Derek Pooley, Cuffley

H.L.R was a community radio station which broadcast to the county town of Hertford and it's surrounding areas from 1988 til 2007.
Although a pirate station H.L.R was the precursor of community radio outside of London. Many of the stations programming features were later copied by legal stations and even one technical idea went on to be replicated in everyday products.
The station endured many highs and lows during it's time on air suffering government raids and prosecutions but still, one way or another, the show carried on.
