TCR Radio wish everyone a Happy Christmas and thank you to all our suppporters who have encouraged us to keep going even when the going got tough and we asked ourselves 'What are we doing?' we must be crazy! The last few weeks we have concentrated in getting the shows together and the content. It will be a long road still- as we are a small team with zero budget but in the New Year we are looking at hopefully grants and sponsors to keep going so if you or your business are interested in supporting your new community station get in touch it will be at a competitive rate and can include a 30 second commercial with production included. We are getting more and more outreach so it is an ideal time to get on board.
We have an exclusive Christmas present to you on behalf of Farms for City Children which Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare founded 40 years ago now. Michael along with Virginia Mckenna and the incredible choir 'Voices at the Door', gave an atmospheric performance at Exeter Cathedral recently. It is a narration of 'The best Christmas present in the World' in which the Germans and the British on Christmas Day 1914 laid down arms and played football and swapped food. Recorded with kind permission of the charity and Stage Engage.
In THE LIBRARY another exclusive we have Jenny Nater who is 96 and seved in WW2 in Dover, Kent. Her story has been published 'Secrets of a Signals Interceptor' and we had the great privelige of meeting Jenny who now lives in Devon. We would like to thank all our local authors who pop in and make great interviews and it is always interesting to find out about what they are writing and even more so about their lives in general. There is great talent right here!
