Dick was adamant he sung here.

Shenton, Battlefield Line ?? -- Dick (III) was adamant, that he'd win that battle (Bosworth); or die -- if there were an opera about it, it would at the end, have him singing a splendid song of last-ditch defiance <D ...

@Calthrop, you would do Simon Sharma out of a job with ease but the Dick in question is not royal. Dick's activities will help in obtaining the answer, as well as a musical reference in the clue will too.

Back to the drawing-board, to rack brains for various celebrated Dicks -- not having a musical bone in my body, references to such will probably be missed...

There is no doubt you will be aware of the Dick, and I would best imagine that everyone on the board will be too. The musical reference (not for all, I understand) is a particular song from a particular artist which links with said Dick, and his activities, in order to then find the station name.

Andover? (Adam Ant's song about highwayman Dick Turpin "Stand and Deliver".....or 'andover' your money and jewels)>
The answer isn't Andover, although it could be as your workings out are exactly right.

To slightly help further you could also add a song by The Clash in order to get the station.

Clue 2: "I'm no thief", cries Dick Turpin. "Well, maybe I am but I only took the cash".

The clue is a steal, literally.

Couldn't be as simple as Islip, could it?
I can't keep things simple with you Calthrop.
My first ever cryptic clue on here was based on Islip being skiddy. The shame of not getting this (better) version!
I don't know that this is better John.

The word ski is included in the answer but with one letter changed, it still sounds like ski. (Does that make sense ?)
