My radio has gone very quiet today ...
Permanently tuned into Summerfest Radio, 87.9FM for the last two weeks, I feel a real sense of loss now that the station has closed.
After hearing wonderful classic tracks that have been the soundtrack to my life, regular flow of news and interviews from Haddenham and the immediate area, and the upbeat and very professional presenters lifting my spirits since 22nd June, this particular Monday seems rather flat.
As a self-confessed radio fanatic, what are my options? Radio 4 suddenly sounds very serious and political, not to say boring. Radio 2 has the 'same old, same old' (do Ken Bruce and Steve Wright *ever* modify their format?!) What about the local commercial station? Naff sums that up, I think!
No, I'm just going to have to go cold turkey, and live in silence for a while.
In the meantime, on behalf of the many folk who tuned in and took great pleasure in listening to the station, let me extend our sincere thanks to the every member of the team responsible for bringing us Summerfest Radio for a second year, in the run up to our prestigious beer festival.
Haddenham's collective thanks and appreciation go to:
So, guys, 'thank you for the music'.
Please come back and do it all again next year.
