One of the first meetings of prospective shareholders was held at the Pavilion Hotel in Scarborough. Don Robinson had invited along WILF PROUDFOOT as a guest and prospective advertiser. During the Q&A session a debate ensued as to whether it was thought there was any risk in the venture. Wilf told the investors they might be better throwing their money off the cliff top, but this seemed to spur them on and by the time the station launched there were over 200 shareholders on the register of operating company, Ellambar Investments Ltd. Wilf became one of the largest investors and was asked to become Managing Director.
