The new community radio station, River Dee Radio, successfully broadcast their first ‘live’ show on Saturday with a three hour extravaganza of music and chat. In a busy, funny and entertaining show, presenters Richard and Jane provided a varied programme of classic tracks from across the decades. In amongst all this great music, they interviewed over a dozen local people all of whom are preparing to present their own programmes in the near future. These on-air introductions demonstrated the sheer talent and diverse experience that lies within our community. In addition to more general programmes, there will be shows specialising in jazz, rock, swing, Scottish and country music. With a strong emphasis on local events, River Dee Radio looks set to be a useful place for the exchange of local information, and all while listeners can enjoy good music too.
A spokesperson for River Dee Radio commented, ‘we were thrilled with the reaction to our first live show. We had far more listeners than we could have hoped for, and the comments afterwards were enormously enthusiastic. Word is already spreading that River Dee Radio is fantastic fun. We can’t wait to produce more live shows.’
As the reaction to the first show has been so good, over the next few weeks the station will produce a regular Saturday morning show from 10am. Already streaming music on a daily basis, listeners can find the station via the TuneIn website and typing in River Dee Radio. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter @riverdeeradio1.
