My good friends Sam Plank & Verity Hilton are just a few day's away from the launch of a much needed Radio Station for our area, FOCAL RADIO. You can listen on DAB or at Focal Radio.com
The music policy is great, it's like the soundtrack of our lives! There are some talented presenters too, like Glyn & Katie Johnson, Leigh Preece and of course the man Sam Plank! (pictured)
You can also hear me on there too as I will be co presenting the sports programmes on Friday evening and of course Saturday afternoon. The sports programme is going to be a mix of great music and sports news and we will be very fast at getting those all important scores out on the air in super fast time.
I went down to the studio yesterday to do a full test show and I have to say I was like a kid in a sweet shop. The studio set up is bloody amazing, no expense has been spared, the best equipment that money can buy has been installed and the station is going to rival anything else that's on offer in this area! Focal will be a station with real Jocks and not just people who play the same old, same old again and again.
Sam & Verity keep dropping into the blog so I want us all to send our best wishes to these brave people who are risking an awful lot to bring a new sound to our city and in true Plank style you can be sure that Focal will be for Local!
I am talking to Focal about working in some way with pitsnpots. The two have the same aims in many ways in as much as we are both passionate about our city and we both want to tackle local issue and be of assistance to local people.
DAB is a great media the sound quality is superb and if you haven't got a DAB set yet I urge you to do so, they are relatively cheap and are widely available. I always listen to the radio through my PC when I am working or blogging and you can bet my station of choice will be Focal on the 5th!
So please, leave your good luck messages for Sam and Verity on the blog and let's hope that Focal is a massive success story for our city
