Hello chums .... well it's been a busy few weeks here at Angel Radio. Our audience numbers are higher than ever ..... We can tell this by the rapid rise in telephone calls, website visits, emails and comments on our Facebook page. Our receptionists are doing a great job coping with some very hectic times when the phones are ringing every 2 or 3 minutes. Some of the more popular shows, which feature record requests and quizzes, need 3 people to handle all
the incoming messages.
Our swinging station is going from strength to strength since Mark Ross took over as Station Manager.
Swinging Radio 60s DAB+ transmissions can be heard in Portsmouth, Gosport, Havant and northern Isle of Wight and online
The DAB+ signal is a bit weak in the Havant & Leigh Park area so we hope to install a 2nd transmitter to boost the strength sometime in the next few weeks.

Our latest Pay-to-Play fundraising day was as much fun as ever .... lots of our team took part either on air or on the reception desk. Most of the day was split into 1-hour slots with 2 on air presenters and either Mark or Tony doing the
When we count up the total number of requests and the time that we were on air we can see that the telephones were ringing an average of every 4-minutes.
As I write this, on the Sunday afternoon of the 24th September, the running total for the day is £3,648 and still rising. Thank you all so much for your generosity.
~ OUR JEAN ~
Pay-to-Play day was always organised by our
Jean. She loved to get her teeth into getting as
many people on air and on the reception desk
as she could. And then she would spend hours and hours entering all the requests, listener's names, and the amount they had pledged, onto the computer database so that everything could be kept track of.
Sadly our Jean died while she was holidaying with her family. She is greatly missed. Jean's funeral was held at the now crematorium in Havant. It was a perfect service and Jean would have loved it, especially the photo displayed on the huge video screens of her standing outside of the Angel Radio building smoking a fag.
This time Pay-to-Play was organised by Jeannie and the database input was done by Anne.
Anne has also recently started presenting the Good Morning Show on Wednesdays at 7.30 as
the previous presenter, Kev Fiford, has now moved to Devon.
Our advertisers provide valuable income,
which is a major contribution to keeping us
on air. We have recently begun advertising
2 of DC Thomson's publications, This England & Evergreen magazines. We have also got our first advert
for a shop in Brighton. We are always pleased to hear from potential advertisers, and you our listeners can help to spread the word by talking to your local businesses about Angel Radio.
