It’s all go for ra­dio sta­tion as Christ­mas lights up

Midweek Visiter - - News -

BUSY busy busy! That about sums us up at this cur­rent mo­ment in time and we’re lov­ing it!

We had Dave Hill from Slade join us live on the Break­fast Show with Brent last week, ahead of Slade’s Liver­pool gig this com­ing Satur­day.

You can hear the in­ter­view in full by go­ing to our web­site. Lots go­ing on at the mo­ment. This Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6, we’ll be in Birk­dale Vil­lage for their an­nual Christ­mas Fayre.

Birk­dale Vil­lage is lovely at the best of times but the Christ­mas Fayre is just mag­i­cal.

With live per­for­mances, fes­tive food and drink too. We can’t wait.

We’re also go­ing to be switch­ing on the Sid­ney Road Christ­mas Lights this Satur­day, where Southport singing sen­sa­tion Astrid Smith from The Voice UK Kids will be per­form­ing, as well as the stu­dents from So Tal­ented Academy in Southport.

It prom­ises to be a great evening. The switch-on is at 6pm and it’s all to raise money for Fresh­fields An­i­mal Res­cue. Hope you can join us.

Also, we now have our ‘pop-up stu­dio’ in Way­far­ers Ar­cade.

Right op­po­site Fa­ther Christ­mas’ Grotto.

We’ll be soak­ing up the Christ­mas at­mos­phere in what I think is one of Southport’s most amaz­ing places.

Pop along ev­ery week­end in De­cem­ber to say hello and get your­self some good­ies.

I think it’s now of­fi­cially ac­cept­able to lis­ten to Christ­mas songs, don’t you?

Our sis­ter ra­dio ser­vice, Southport Christ­mas Ra­dio, is cur­rently broad­cast­ing on­line and on your mo­bile de­vices, play­ing the great­est Christ­mas songs, non-stop, 24/7. Plus you’ll be able to hear how mag­i­cal Christ­mas is in Southport this year.

It’s all in as­so­ci­a­tion with Visit Southport, Sefton Coun­cil and Southport BID.

Just go to http://www.south­portchrist­mas­ra­ for all the de­tails and to lis­ten LIVE.

I thought i’d take the op­por­tu­nity, in this edi­tion of the Sand­grounder Show­case to do just that – and show­case some of the pic­tures from when we broad­cast live back­stage at the 2018 Southport Christ­mas Lights Switch-On.

What a great af­ter­noon and evening that was.

My­self and Dave Tur­ley re­ally did have a fab time and i think all the lights, in­clud­ing the tree, look amaz­ing.

Fi­nally, in the com­ing weeks we’ll be get­ting even more fes­tive here at San­grounder Ra­dio by chang­ing our name to SANTA­grounder Ra­dio (see what we did there). More de­tails on that very soon. Any­one for a mince pie? As ever, to lis­ten to us, as your lo­cal ra­dio sta­tion, you can find us on your DAB+ Dig­i­tal Ra­dio, mo­bile apps, smart de­vices and on­line via www.sand­grounder­ra­
