GRANVILLE HOUSE - 1981 - 2002

A TRIBUTE

On Tuesday July 30th 2002 at 3.00pm, Steve Jordan was assured of a place in history, well in radio terms anyway, as he was the last ever person to broadcast to Leicestershire from Granville House.

The building's occupants, Leicester Sound, moved to new state of the art studios at the Meridian Business Park, just off Junction 21 of the M1, bringing to an end 21 years of Leicestershire radio history

Granville House is to be converted into flats
