Mark Chapple - Summerfest Radio

Have you been listening to Haddenham's 'Summerfest Radio' over the last two weeks? What a fantastic job our team of presenters has done.

Your website editor has been glued to his wireless since the station launched, enjoying local news, slick presentations and a great choice of music that has had him singing along (thankfully, out of public earshot!). His air guitar has also made an appearance from time to time — sad or what!!

A hearty vote of thanks is due to the team of professional presenters — all of whom have given their time and expertise as a gift to the Summerfest Beer Festival. Please come back again next year, guys — we've loved it!

Summerfest Radio closes its microphones on Sunday 7th July, after the 2013 Beer Festival has finished. So if you want to see how it all works, you'd better get your skates on, and pop down to Haddenham Garden Centre, where the radio studio is set up at the back of the outdoor section, near the pots. Look out for the colourful banner on the side of the studio wall — you're welcome to pop your head round the door and say Hi.

If you can't get along in person, you might want to take a look at Mark Chapple, one of the team of presenters, in action.
