GSV and WMR close down - maybe permanently



It has been reported to me by the operator of the Good Ship Venus radio station that he will no longer be on the air, along with sister station WMR. 

It was posted on a forum that Jim's voice was familiar, which led to people digging around.

He has recently received email threats of being reported to OFCOM. 

Unless GSV and WMR can find a remote location, the plug has been pulled, I am afraid.
