I am the first international member of the broadcast team. Due to the power of technology of which I have no great understanding, I am able to sit in my home outside Philadelphia and create a weekly radio show that will be broadcast in Thame.

I have travelled in the UK for many years and have always enjoyed sharing musical journeys with my friends and colleagues. I want to thank my old friend Steve Fox for inviting me to be a part of this experience. I have no formal radio training but have been putting together musical sets for random gatherings for most of my life. Now, I get to do it for a broader audience!

The overall theme for my show is Journeys Through America. I will share with you my great love for music from the music capitals of the US: New Orleans, Memphis, San Francisco, Detroit, Philly, of course and many other locations. There will also be plenty of surprises along the way. Thanks for tunin’ in.

Summerfest 2019

Wow what another great day we had at Summerfest 2019. Didn't the Haddeham Beer Festivals Trust do a great job with organisation and once again surpassed themselves, well done guys.

The beer was great, did anyone try the Red Kite ale? 

Thanks to everyone who spoke with our roving reporters Steve and Annie and those who called in to see us at our gazebo. The sun did make a very brief appearance but on the whole it was a pleasant day to say the least weather wise. The bands were great too and well deserved round of applause must go to the sound technicians too.

Looking forward to Winterfest already? then keep listening to Red Kite Radio for news and updates.

Cherry Waller is our new presenter who has taken over the 60’s rewind show.

She was born in Princes Risborough, then after getting married to her husband Ray, moved to Haddenham with her daughter Joanna and son Gary, who both live locally and both also love music. She has lived here for 33 years, so knows the area very well and is a real local!

She has always loved music and the radio from a very early age, and had her own record player and record collection from the age of 5. She loves checking out the record collections of anyone she meets and is always tuned into the radio at home, in the car or even in the bath! She loves pop quizzes and any music related competitions.

Please get in touch with any requests you may have for the 60’s rewind show and she will play them for you!
