Douglas Skymaster C-54G-5-DO 45-543 Stake House Fell, trough of bowland

A day out in the Trough of Bowland with some Flickr buddies as well as Hal and Steve located this undercarriage leg from a cargo 'plane whose instruments were supposedly seduced when returning from the Berlin airlift by the call of a commercial radio station to fly into Stake House Fell.

Were there any commercial radio stations in 1949? Wotherspoon's suggestion of a BBC station seems more likely.
