Ra­dio Canal­side 102.8FM

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

WE have re­cently re­ceived the equip­ment which will al­low us to set up our fifth stu­dio at Canal­side.

With two stu­dios avail­able to do live broad­casts and four that can be used to pre-record shows and in­ter­views, we be­lieve we have what must be one of the best set-ups of any com­mu­nity ra­dio sta­tion in the coun­try.

We must say a big thank you to two of our mar­vel­lous vol­un­teers, Si­mon Leah and Mark Black­man, who have de­voted many hours of their time in­stalling and test­ing the kit and mak­ing sure our vol­un­teer pre­sen­ters are fa­mil­iar with how it operates. Be­ing a com­mu­nity project we rely on vol­un­teers to carry out im­por­tant tasks for us and a spe­cial men­tion goes out to Philippa Bar­nett and Tr­ish Napier who pop­u­late the What’s On guide on our web­site www.thethread.org.uk.

The guide fea­tures more than 500 events at any one time, rang­ing from jum­ble sales at a lo­cal vil­lage hall to am­a­teur sports games in the lo­cal area and also in­cludes events that take place just out­side our broadcasting area. If you would like an event you are or­gan­is­ing fea­tured on the web­site and men­tioned on air, sim­ply com­plete the event sub­mis­sion form at the bot­tom of each page of What’s On. Brian Moores
