This week’s show features songs from Bruno Mars, Take That and Leona Lewis. We also have the regular anagram game – but we have moved onto Food and Drink – and the riddle was guessed by quite a few people so I think it was probably too easy! The cultured chat included hobbies for men (which included maple tree tapping!), a heterochromic marsupial and an update from the Juno probe in a wide orbit round Jupiter. Along with the interesting facts…welcome to the Snuggle Show!
Whenever you start a new venture one thing which really motivates you is the support that your friends, colleagues and members of the community provide. Without this support, any venture probably would never get as far as it does and some might actually flounder due to lack of support. One question which I get asked a lot is how you can support the station so I thought I would write a quick blog post with some idea, one of which you might be able to engage with. It goes without saying, on behalf of everyone who contributes to the station, we really appreciate your support in any form – so, here’s a big THANK YOU!!!
Back on target with this show – although I think you had two weeks of it playing as a recording on the station…ooops! Despite the hot weather we have been experiencing recently in the UK, we start the show with Cloudbusting by Kate Bush and have the NHS Choir singing Bridge over Troubled Waters. We have an update on the Juno probe as it orbits Jupiter and discuss if you match the personality linked to the day you were born by the 1838 rhyme. Don’t worry, we also manage to squeeze in the riddle and the anagram game – so much in one show! How do we do it!
In this show we enjoy the music from Blood Brothers, Cats and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. The song requests are from musicals which I have never heard of, let alone seen, but both were great choices and we discuss whether we can play operas and operettas on the musical show. Coupled with the regular features of the lyrics game and clues to the musicals, it a show that you will certainly be singing along to!
Well, I’m sure there is a saying that if something happens three times in a row then it has become a thing – or am I making that up? This week we waffle about the hot weather, what is happening in the gaming world and top films. Also – what are your favourite books and are you able to guess the TV theme tune from just the introduction? All this and some classic pop music including Wham, Bucks Fizz and Kelly Clarkson.
Sorry for the delay in uploading this show but there is still plenty of time to enjoy the chilled out music from The Osmonds, ABBA, Will Young and Travis. The interesting facts include the unique event which happened on the 18th February 1979 and why should not use the word ‘pants’ if you were ever back in time in the 1880s! There is also the regular riddle and the anagram game, so why not grab a pen and pencil and listen in.
Stealing the famous quote from Martin Luther-King I would like you all to know that I have this dream. It’s not a big dream or even one which encompasses world peace. It is in fact quite a small dream and one which, when compared to Martin Luther-King’s quote, I feel quite inadequate actually quoting him. When I started along my journey in Radio Land I knew that I wanted to present but I also had another aim in mind. With the station becoming more established this aim has rose to the surface and, during the last week, I have been working hard to start to make the dream become a reality – what is it that dream? I want you to become part of the team!
There is quite a gap between having the idea and concept for your show to actually broadcasting, and most of this time is taken up with planning and preparation with quite a lot of energy thrown in for good measure! In order to ensure that all your shows go as fluid as possible I recommend that you take the time to plan these in detail. In order to help you with this, here is an insight to my own planning process and the software I use.
Yes it managed to make it to a second show! In this show we had music from One Direction, the hip gyrating Ricky Martin and the Five Young Cannibals. In the waffling segments we looked at the top five games currently being played, the new Overwatch Hero – Ana and how far would you go for beautiful skin? All this and the Top five quiz and Guess the Theme Tune! What more could you want from a radio show? – and don’t shout prizes!
So – the moment has eventually arrived and you are ready for your first broadcast. The show is planned, your content on the website is up to date and ready and you have decided on the time and date for your first show. This is the final post which will show you have to actually connect up to the station and what to do for those final preparations. Nearly there!
