Mayor on air during opening of Wirral radio station's new studio
WIRRAL's mayor took to the airwaves during the opening of a local radio station's new studio.
Councillor Dave Mitchell was invited to the special event celebrating the opening of Flame Radio's second studio in St Paul's Road Mission Church.
He talked on-air with radio presenter Keith Robertshaw, about how technology has changed over the years, to a point now where local volunteers can successfully operate quality community radio.
Station manager Norman Polden said: "Our new studio will give us full flexibility in enabling interviews of local people to be recorded, and youngsters to record programmes, while our main broadcasting schedule continues.
"Whilst our main focus is to serve Wirral's Christian Community, many local charity groups have also been featured and we enjoy broadcasting about our local Merseyside heritage".
Recently, Flame broadcast an hour-long documentary on the historic Chester Mystery Plays, presented by John Cheek.
A radio dramatization of the original Pilgrims' Progress is currently being broadcast.
The cast includes several professional actors, plus supporting roles from local people.
Broadcasting from the Green Door Studios in Rock Ferry, Birkenhead, Flame CCR broadcasts to Liverpool, Wirral, Chester and north Wales on 1521 medium-wave (AM), and further afield on-line at www.flameradio.org - just 'click to listen'.
