New volunteers

By September 14, 2018

We recently put out a call on Facebook for more volunteer news readers and have had quite a few replies. Similarly we have had other volunteers respond to our ongoing call for help to run the station.

I'm please to say that several of the volunteers have passed through the first stages of auditioning for voice work and another is working to assist in Outside Broadcast production, with a view to future University education in Media Production.

Once they have been finally authenticated we'll reveal their names. Watch this space.

BBC Radio Oxford has been working with community radio stations in and around Oxfordshire recently and Red Kite Radio have been involved. On Wednesday 15th, Howard Bond, interviewed Jacki Hunt from Turn End Gardens in Haddenham. The show is called South Oxfordshire Takeover.

You can hear the show again via the BBC Radio Oxford website 

Red Kite Radio's interview with Ben from the grou "Shires" will be in a future edition.

A grateful Donation

By August 14, 2018

During the very hot weather we experienced recently, our volunteers were experiencing some very sweaty times in the studio. It was made worse by the fact we could not open all the windows due to external noise, which would have disturbed their shows.

Thankfully, a very recent donation was made in the form of a small air conditioning unit. Once installed, the presenters could relax in the cooler studio and present shows without extraneous noise interruptions. 

We're very grateful to Steve Fox, whose company provided the air conditioner.
