The voice with some­thing for all

Chiltern’s new ra­dio sta­tion takes to the air­waves

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

This week has been a stream of mu­sic and ad­verts, all of which have been pur­chased by lo­cal com­pa­nies and in­di­vid­u­ally made by a team of vol­un­teers.

This Satur­day (Fe­bru­ary 13) at 10am in Che­sham’s Mar­ket Square, as part of the an­nual Lu­nar New Year cel­e­bra­tions tak­ing place from 10am to 2pm, the sta­tion will go live

Mark Rann, who is co­host­ing the drive time show and has been busily pro­duc­ing the sched­ule said: “There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one. On Satur­day night we have a drum and bass show, as well as an ‘80s show later in the week, BURYFields’ Martin Free­man is host­ing a Guilty Plea­sures show and there’s lots of chat.”

Lis­ten­ers will hear fa­mil­iar names on the ra­dio too be­cause lo­cal Coun­cil­lors Mimi Harker and Emily Cul­ver­house each have their own show.

Miss Cul­ver­house will be host­ing a What’s On show and play­ing show tunes be­tween 6pm to 8pm on Satur­day and as­trologer Rus­sell Grant will be one of her guests.

Mrs Harker will be on Sun­day for a Valen­tines’ ded­i­ca­tions show.

If you want to make a ded­i­ca­tion to a loved one in time for Sun­day or to any­one else at any time dur­ing the week you can fill out a form on Satur­day at the launch or pop into Brazil’s in Mar­ket Square, Che­sham, or Har­ris & Hoole in Amer­sham.

They will also have a bucket for do­na­tions in aid of the pro­ject, which has been funded solely by do­na­tions and paid ad­verts.

Miss Cul­ver­house added: “We are noth­ing if not di­verse. Lo­cal rap­per Mikar Ka­mara, aka Mikar-theVi­par, will be play­ing new mu­sic on his Salone Boy Show and we have Che­sham in Bloom and al­lot­ment veter­ans Vince Cromp­ton and Allen Til­bury dis­cussing all things gar­den­ing.”

Mr Rann added: “We also hope to be sam­pling food from var­i­ous eater­ies in the area on the drive time show.”

Other high­lights will be Danny’s Daily Ex­er­cise on the break­fast show and a reg­u­lar so­cial me­dia round-up That Es­ca­lated Quickly by Eleanor Garth as well as Lin­go­tas­tic, who will be teach­ing Twin­kle, Twin­kle Lit­tle Star in dif­fer­ent lan­guages at 11am each morn­ing for the tod­dlers and mums.

Some peo­ple may have seen Amy Deane, Chris Spruyten­berg and Andy Mur­ray (not the ten­nis player) out and about col­lect­ing Amy’s Amaz­ing Sto­ries and Con­ver­sa­tions with Chris and Andy’s Chiltern Voices.

They will all be high­light­ing lo­cal peo­ple in­clud­ing ‘ Allo ‘Allo’s Guy Siner.

Chiltern Voice is only sched­uled to run un­til Fe­bru­ary 21, how­ever the team be­hind the pro­ject has told the Ex­am­iner that if peo­ple en­gage and sup­port the ra­dio sta­tion, it will be back later in the year for longer.

The sched­ule is al­most com­plete with only one or two slots to be an­nounced, so if you have some­thing you are burn­ing to tell the district about, then email info@ chiltern­ or fol­low @chiltern­voice on Twit­ter or Face­book.
