BACK ON THE AIR AGAIN !



 

NEARLY fourteen months ago my 32 year career as a freelance producer and presenter of radio programmes for the BBC and UK Independent Local Radio came to an abrupt end.

 

Since then, I’ve received many hundreds of emails, letters, cards and other messages from former listeners, all of whom have said how much they miss my programmes. And still the messages keep coming! In my opinion, such loyalty demands a response in kind and, by the end of June last year, I had already vowed that, if a meaningful opportunity came my way, I would get back on-air.

 

I’m pleased to report that such an opportunity has arisen and, from next Saturday July 4 and Sunday July 5, I’ll be presenting the lunchtime (noon to 3pm) slots on the easy listening internet radio station Serenade Radio.

 

Anyone with a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone can listen-in. All you need to do is type www.serenade-radio.com into your browser, then click on the “Click Here to Listen” button near the top of the Serenade Radio home page. That will open-up a small tune-in window containing a green circle in which there’s a white triangle arrow pointing to the words serenade radio. Click on the white arrow, sit back, enjoy the nostalgic music and please tell your friends.

 

By the way, you’ll soon be able to email me at david@serenade-radio.com but, in the meantime, please “Like” and follow the Serenade Radio Facebook Page. And you can follow me on Twitter too. I guess you could say @MrNostalja (my Twitter identity) is back!
