CANALSIDE Ra­dio is one of more than 300 Com­mu­nity Ra­dio and Me­dia or­gan­i­sa­tions across the UK.

Broad­cast­ing to the North-East Cheshire area since 2004 on 102.8FM from our me­dia cen­tre in Bolling­ton, Canalside Ra­dio is ded­i­cated to serv­ing our area with not only the best and most var­ied mu­sic se­lec­tions you’ll hear any­where.

We con­tinue our look at the pre­sen­ters who en­ter­tain you on 102.8FM and to­day it’s the turn of the fab­u­lous Fay Arm­strong. From Guyana (via Lon­don)... Fay’s love of ra­dio started in 1974, open­ing Tony Black­burn’s post! She worked at the Lon­don Pal­la­dium, Anglia TV, and the fash­ion house Windsmoor be­fore mov­ing to Cheshire in 1984 where she de­vel­oped her ca­reer in PR. Fay is, on air, at least twice a week, usu­ally pre­re­corded as she’s al­ways trav­el­ling. ‘Sonic Stir­fry’ is a mu­si­cal melt­ing pot on Tues­day even­ing and the ‘Fab­u­luss Fifties’ se­ries is a must on Sun­day af­ter­noon if you en­joy the many mu­si­cal styles that flour­ished in that decade; Fay’s clear, re­laxed style com­ple­ments the sounds,as she gives an in­sight into the mu­sic, song­writ­ers and com­posers fea­tured; all se­lected from her own mu­sic.
