Today is my 200th show on Radio CRMK. I guess that is a bit of a personal milestone but it is nothing in the history of the station, a project originally founded in 1978 !
When I reach my 2,000th show then perhaps we can have a real party. Put the date in your diary friends.
This was he very first song I played....
It will be the opening track today.
Who remembers the bit of fun we had twinning the toilet in the radio station with a village in Uganda where we funded two toilets for families which did not have even this basic form of sanitation.
There was a little girl in Tennessee who was terminally ill. She loved dogs, her family made an appeal on Facebook for people round the world to e-mail her pictures of heir dogs. We had a show with songs dedicated to listeners dogs, all played for this little girl.
We supported a 24 hour football game sponsored for Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter. I was on the touchline for the 24 hours then came in to the studio to broadcast an overnight radio disco and to report on the game.
What else ? Oh yeh - the day I conned BBC Radio into playing a bit of punk rock !
And of course there were The Jingle Girls...
It has been a lot of fun, I hope you enjoy the music I play. Every broadcast I watch the computer to see where our listeners are.
Of course life is a disco so dance..................
YES - I did dance to this in the studio !
Not a very good dancer am I ? Not a good dancer - but a rubbish singer !
I play music to make people smile and be happy.
Let's blow some bubbles - bubbles of LOVE.
So Cat Stevens was he first track I played. This is the track I have played more than any other.
Please join me. 6am to 8am www.crmk.co.uk LET'S HAVE A PARTY.
