Mark Chapple - Summerfest Radio

Red Kite Radio is the new radio station for Thame, Haddenham and the surrounding villages, launching in 2017.

It is the brainchild of a group of radio professionals with backgrounds in national and local radio. Over the last four years, the founding directors staged the four successful Summerfest Radio broadcasts in support of the Haddenham Beer Festival.

Broadcasting from studios at the Haddenham Garden Centre, Red Kite Radio will be the only radio station exclusively serving Thame, Haddenham and the surrounding villages. The station will offer a mix of music from the last five decades, alongside community news updates from people and organisations across the station's broadcast area.

To help build relationships with local businesses, the board is looking to recruit a part-time business liaison manager. He or she will sell advertising and sponsorship packages on Red Kite Radio. Such advertisers will be supporting the radio station and its day-to-day running costs.
