Ra­dio

Canal­side

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

FOR a lit­tle com­mu­nity ra­dio sta­tion we cer­tainly be­lieve we punch above our weight with the qual­ity of the shows that we broad­cast.

Have you heard the re­cent in­ter­views that we have had with stars of both TV and ra­dio?

Nick Wright in­ter­viewed fa­mous DJ Tony Black­burn, who talked about his ca­reer and helped raise the pro­file of elec­tric cars in the area. Re­becca Done in­ter­viewed Sunny Or­monde, who if you weren’t aware, plays the part of Lil­ian Bel­lamy in the long run­ning ra­dio soap The Archers.

Sunny was pro­mot­ing an event that had been or­gan­ised by the Mac­cles­field and Dis­trict Live at Home Scheme on June 28, at which she was ap­pear­ing and proved to be a huge suc­cess.

Of course we don’t just in­ter­view well-known peo­ple – we also in­vite into our stu­dios peo­ple from lo­cal com­mu­nity groups who wish to raise the pro­file of their or­gan­i­sa­tions or an event they are run­ning to raise funds.

Our out­side events team is busy sup­port­ing lo­cal groups in their fundrais­ing ef­forts. Look out for Si­mon Leah and Brian Moores at the open­ing of the Bolling­ton well dress­ing week, Nick Wright at the Whirley School fair and Mark Ee­les at the Puss Bank School fair – all on July 4.
