John Spencer-Barnes reports that he has signed-off the last TX from a Local Radio Mk III Desk at BBC Radio Lancashire.

Via Twitter:-

"The last of the legendary BBC Local Radio Mark III studio desks in the network has broadcast for the final time at @BBCLancashire. †
Iíve presented hundreds of shows from this design classic and itís the end of an era. †
It will be dismantled later today" .

It's a small world.
I wrote an article on BBC Radio Lancashire (Blackburn) many years ago, for Studio Sound magazine, Chief Engineer Bernie, showed me round.

It was heavily redacted by the BBC before publication.
