You tube. The Jodrell Bank Song
On Monday 14 April 2008, Cheshire’s 106.9 Silk FM unveiled to its listeners their own campaign song to save Jodrell Bank when it was faced with a shortfall in its budget, entitled “The Jodrell Bank Song” and sung by a group dubbed “The Astronomers”. Along with the song, the Silk FM team also produced a music video filmed in front of the iconic Lovell telescope [link above]. Silk FM released the song for download from Monday 21 April 2008. All proceeds went towards saving Jodrell Bank.
