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 SNR will be joining radio stations across the nation at 3.00pm on Christmas Day to bring you the historic first Christmas Message from His Majesty King Charles III.
Amongst our special guest presenters, Peter Kirkpatrick, a stalwart of community radio in Great Yarmouth through the pandemic, brings us a Christmas edition of his regular show ’50 Years of Pop’ (Christmas Eve at 9.00am, repeated at 3.00pm on Boxing 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 Day morning at 6.00am) and over New Year, another hugely experienced DJ and radio presenter, Mark Stafford, returns to South Norfolk Radio to present the 26th 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 (1.00pm on New Years Eve, repeated at 9.00am on Holiday Monday, 2nd January).
On the ‘home front’, South Norfolk Radio regular DJ Harry will bring us a special seasonal edition of ‘Dancemania’ (6.00pm Christmas Eve), he also brings us a massive six-hour long ‘Dancemania’ a week later on New Years Eve and David Mann will present our fourth 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 Eve 4.00pm), we join Peter in ‘The Retro Room’ (Christmas Day starting at 6.00pm) and DJ Mike has a Christmas-themed ‘Dance Time in Texas’ (Christmas Day at 9.00pm).
South Norfolk Radio’s David Bligh returns after his recent break with a special Christmas edition of his regular show ‘Back in the Day’, focussing as always on the music and culture of the 1970s (Friday December 23rd at 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!
