Can any­one see Santa headed this way, yet?

Midweek Visiter - - Sandgrounder Showcase -

K ... SO now I think it’s ac­cept­able to start talk­ing about Christ­mas ...

Yes, I know it’s only the end of Oc­to­ber, but we have so much go­ing on dur­ing the run-up to Christ­mas.

Not only are we go­ing to be of­fi­cially switch­ing on the Sid­ney Road Christ­mas Lights on De­cem­ber 8, with the help of the tal­ented peo­ple at So Tal­ented Academy, in South­port, but we’re do­ing a whole range of things, too.

As of Sun­day, Novem­ber 18 (the day of the South­port Christ­mas Lights Switch-On) we’ll be of­fi­cially launch­ing ‘SANTA­grounder Ra­dio’ on­line (see what we did there?!)

For the last cou­ple of years, over the Christ­mas pe­riod, we’ve changed our name to SANTA­grounder, this year we’re go­ing one step fur­ther and launch­ing a ded­i­cated on­line Christ­mas ra­dio sta­tion, which will play all the great­est Christ­mas songs.

Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, right up

Right, enough about Christ­mas, I found my­self park­ing on the multi-storey car park on Tulketh Street last week.

You can eas­ily for­get it’s there and even on a cold, grey, Oc­to­ber af­ter­noon, the view is still great.

Also the lat­est ra­dio lis­ten­ing re­search has just been pub­lished by the of­fi­cially ra­dio data col­lect­ing com­pany, RAJAR.

The lat­est fig­ures show that lis­ten­ing the dig­i­tal ra­dio is at an all time high, with DAB Ra­dio be­ing the most pre­ferred way of lis­ten­ing, com­pared to on­line and dig­i­tal TV.

Don’t for­get, you can lis­ten to us as your lo­cal ra­dio sta­tion on your DAB+ dig­i­tal ra­dio, mo­bile apps, smart de­vices and on­line via www. sand­grounder­ra­
