Kestrel FM, Basingstoke's commercial radio station, celebrated its 9th birthday on 18 May 2007 and went out and about around Basingstoke to celebrate the day.  They ended up at its spiritual home, so called because it was a team from HRB that had a dream back in the early 1990s to create a full time commercial radio station for Basingstoke. 

After 2 trial stations as Basingstoke Carnival Radio and another 2 as Kestrel FM, they were awarded the license in September 1997 and went on air on 18 May 1998.  All 4 of the trial stations involved HRB in some form.

Kestrel FM's Breakfast Show host and HRB's former Thursday evening host Mark Watson along with Philip Hatto joined Neil Ogden in the studio for a simulcast to talk about both stations…
