Launched on 11 November 1980 at 07:00 with a commissioned peal of bells from Lincoln Cathedral. The first words spoken on BBC Radio Lincolnshire came from Nick Brunger: "And it's a warm welcome for the first time to the programmes of BBC Radio Lincolnshire."
Manx Radio was concerned by the choice of medium wave frequencies given to the station.
In 1988 the station commissioned UK jingle producer Alfasound to compose a jingle package based on the traditional English folk song The Lincolnshire Poacher, continuing on this theme until 2006.
In 2006 it conducted a six month trial of XDA pocket-PCs for the BBC, using Technica Del Arte's Luci mobile (on the hoof) interviewing application. It used to have a BBC Bus, until licence fee cutbacks in early 2008 forced budget priorities to be streamlined.
