Redshift Radio on FM

On Monday 4th April, Redshift Radio transmitted their first ever FM broadcast on 87.7FM. Dr Gav & Liz have worked flat out to get this off the ground and I'm so proud to be part of the team.

My first FM show was on Wednesday and I was so nervous, just like it was my first ever show. Anna Woodhart from Waterbabies and Rebecca & Denise from Arbonne International were my guests. I'd lie if I said the show went without a hitch but it wasn't as bad as I expected, the listeners would never have known. By 5pm I was back in the studio presenting a drivetime show with Simon J. Newbury. I had such a ball and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I am proud to call myself a radio presenter now!

If you're within 10 miles radius of Crewe you can tune in to 87.7 FM or you can listen on line on

Another great success

A week ago I was frantically twisting modelling balloons into Buzz Lightyear, Woody and the little green alien to raffle off for the Toy Story Family Movie event. (see photo)
The movie was well attended and we raised £91.53 for the Meningitis Trust in memory of Charlie Mann. Deborah Wainwright from Cakes By Deborah Jayne made Toy Story cupcakes which were sold for 50p, and we had the usual popcorn and soft drinks for a small donation. I offered my balloon modelling skills and made swords and dogs, these went down well and the queue was as long as when the children were waiting for facepainting!

Brilliant day and had some great feedback! Thank you to everyone who attended and especially to Deborah for the yummy cakes, Gwen for helping with the raffle and Mark for helping with balloons and just always being there for me!

Can't wait for the next one which is Peter Pan on Saturday 28th May, and children can dress up as fairies or pirates!
