Thanks to everyone who visted the Red Kite Radio stand at the Thame Lights Switch On event and had a go at our competition to guess how many hours we have been on air since we started broadcasting last June.

The correct answer was 12,720 hours and Linda from Thame was our winner - she was within 48 hours of the correct answer and wins a £30 dining voucher for The Black Horse in Thame

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.
