If anyone's feeling adventurous with the keyboard, BBC Radio Ulster / Foyle are commissioning a new station sound...

It can be seen at the top of the Radio York and Radio Humberside Facebook pages https://www.facebook.com/BBCRadioYork/ and https://www.facebook.com/bbcradiohumberside

It also very briefly appeared as the background on all the local radio schedule and programme pages several weeks ago. Presumably it will return tomorrow.

I’m not sure those new logos are quite as inclusive as the current ones, which did a good job in explaining that the ‘city’ named stations actually cover loads of other places as well.

Part of the letter N, part of the letter O and part of the letter L is a map?

Oh yeah, that's quite nice. Presumably it's random contours and not tailored for the actual geography

Exactly, they are contour lines joining points of the same height. Lines close together means significant elevation change, lines far apart means it's flat. Wonder if they are genuine!

Reminds me of the story of the centrally-designed identikit leaflets all BBC LR stations had printed in the late 90s in the era of the the maroon background and handwritten-style gold place names.

Apparently it was only after thousands of Radio Humberside's leaflets were delivered to Hull that someone pointed out the place names included Dunstable, Luton, Letchworth, St Albans, etc., to the embarrassment of the editor who'd signed off the proofs without spotting the mistake.

Whether BBC Three Counties Radio had a load of leaflets name-checking Anlaby, Hessle, Scunthorpe and Driffield, sadly I don't know.
