73-year-old Deke Duncan started playing records from his shed in Stevenage, England in 1974.
But with no licence, the station could only be sent to a speaker in his living room, where his wife Teresa listened.
#OnThisDay 1974: "The station's entire audience has decided to go down the shops" Radio 77 held the dubious distinction of broadcasting to the smallest audience in the country. pic.twitter.com/xkUZnfAPpR— BBC Archive (@BBCArchive) October 9, 2018
After the BBC Archive posted a video (above) on Deke's Radio 77, BBC Three Counties radio decided to track him down. They discovered that Deke still broadcasts Radio 77 to "the smallest audience in the country" - his wife.
BBC Three Counties radio offered Deke a one-hour special on Christmas, so he can finally realize his "ultimate ambition" to broadcast to the rest of Stevenage.
Back in 1974, Deke Duncan ran a radio studio in his garden shed which broadcast to just one person - his wife. His lifelong ambition was to broadcast to the whole of Stevenage 📻— BBC Three Counties (@BBC3CR) November 18, 2018
