commentator. Then I went on to present special week night football
programmes. After three to four years I became the main Saturday

Mill memories ...
I remember sitting here reporting and covering Villa's European
Cup win in 1982.
of my memories of broadcasting from Pebble Mill mainly focus on
remember sitting here describing the scenes during the FA Cup semi
final at Hillsborough when all those people were killed. Also the
big fire at Bradford City ground. Initially it didn't seem like
it was that serious but it turned out to be horrendous.
are the things, for whatever reason, that have stuck in my mind
as my key moments at Pebble Mill.
there have been some fantastic times too. I remember talking to
Elton John. The was at Watford football ground and he was persuaded
to come up to our commentary point for a chat.
remember sitting here reporting and covering Villa's European Cup
win in 1982.
there have been some great memories of working at Pebble Mill, but
also great memories of being out at major sporting events whether
it's cup finals, world championships etc.
to the Mailbox ...
I just hope that people will take the opportunity to come and
see what's going on at BBC WM.
sad to be moving in a way because there's no car parking spaces
at the Mailbox.
the facilities at the Mailbox are far more modern. There's a lot
more studio space and the public will be able to see into the radio
studios. I think it's always important to be as close to the public
We will be in the heart of the city and I just hope that people
will take the opportunity to come and see what's going on at BBC
