There’s a line up of seasonal editions of some of our regular shows over Christmas and New Year, with our own South Norfolk Radio volunteers joined by some guest presenters during the holidays too, and, for the first time, SNR will be joining radio stations across the nation at 3.00pm on Christmas Day to bring you the Queen’s Speech.

Amongst our special guest presenters, Nigel Bateman, a stalwart of community and hospital radio in Liverpool, brings us a Christmas edition of his regular show ‘Nige on the Radio’ (Christmas Eve at 6.00pm, repeated 10.00am Christmas Day); Déaglán O’Callaghan, an experienced Dublin-born radio presenter, who spent more than 15 years broadcasting in Australia, presents ‘Christmas Cocktails’, a collection of country, easy listening and traditional music (Christmas Eve at 10.00pm and repeated on Christmas Day at 6.00pm) and over New Year, another hugely experienced DJ and radio presenter, Mark Stafford, returns to South Norfolk Radio to present the 25th annual edition of his ‘Rock & Roll Heaven’ programme, looking back at the music of artists that we’ve unfortunately lost through the course of the last year (5.00pm on New Years Eve, repeated  1.00pm New Years Day).

On the ‘home front’, South Norfolk Radio regular Angel will bring us a special seasonal edition of the ‘Drum and Bass Show’ (10.00pm Christmas Day) and David Mann will present our third annual local edition of perennial radio favourite ‘Junior Choice’ (Christmas Day 8.00am).

Music from December charts across the decades features in ‘JP’s Golden Years’ (Christmas Day 4.00pm), Peter has an ’80s Special’ with an extended edition of ‘The Retro Room’ (Boxing Day starting at 5.00pm) and DJ Mike has a Christmas-themed ‘Dance Time in Texas’ (Boxing Day  at 9.00pm).

South Norfolk Radio’s David Bligh has a special Christmas edition of his regular show  ‘Back in the Day’, focussing as always on the music and culture of the 1970s (Christmas Eve 8.00pm) and of course some seasonal favourites will appear in the South Norfolk Radio Music Mix too. You can find all the details on the schedule tab on this website.

We are still facing somewhat uncertain and unsettling times, but we hope that the wide range of music that we play on South Norfolk Radio will bring you  at least a little ‘comfort and joy’ and all the volunteers at South Norfolk Radio join in wishing you a Very Merry Christmas!
