South Norfolk Radio launches its new season on 29th May (Bank Holiday Monday) with a change to the music you can enjoy during the daytimes.

“Our daytime music mix really has beeen a mix of styles and genres up to now” explains Radio Station Manager Anthony Woods, “but we’ve now decided to introduce a more carefully structured and curated music collection during the day so that listeners will know exactly when to tune in to hear their own favourite kind of music.”

“The changes have been made possible by some newly enhanced computer software that we use to control our station output” continues Anthony, who is also Chair of South Norfolk Radio, the not-for-profit Community Interest Company, which is run entirely by volunteers. “We are hoping that having regular slots for different styles, eras and genres of music will encourage more people into more regular listening habits, and it can also be a useful tool as we try to attract more local advertisers to use our services too.”

“Changes like these are something of a stab in the dark for us” concedes Anthony ” and we’re very keen to get feedback from listeners on the changes that we’re making – after all we are here to serve the local community.”

The new daytime music mix schedule begins daily at 9.00am, immediately after #BreakfastBriefing, SNR’s regular hour-long morning mixture of news, weather, travel, local information and good music, and is planned to run as follows :

09.00am-11.00am –  60s and 70s Hits

11.00am-1.00pm – Early Lunch 80s

1.00pm-3.00pm  – All Out 90s

3.00pm-5.00pm – Noughties to Now

“Some of  South Norfolk Radio’s regular programmes will be changing broadcast times for the new season too” says Anthony Woods, “although the majority of the specialist evening and Sunday programmes remain in their accustomed slots, so loyal listeners will continue to be able to enjoy those. And of course our new daytime music schedules will continue to be punctuated with regular updates of national and international news and national weather, provided by our Leeds-based partner Radio News Hub.”
