Tameside Radio’s Summer Schedule
Tuesday 23rd June 2015 @ 00:24 by Charlotte

From this Saturday (27th June), some of your favourite shows broadcast on Tameside Radio maybe moving to a new timeslot, or even to another day altogether. This is because from midnight, we’ll be broadcasting to our Summer Schedule – details of which below – so please read for more information regarding which shows are moving.

Weekdays (07:00-19:00)

The biggest change from our current schedule is on weekdays as Rokib & Penella will be taking over the breakfast show. Gareth will move to the drivetime slot, albeit an hour later from 3pm. 2-3pm will see the return of Tameside Tonight back to it’s daytime slot, renamed Tameside Today it’ll still contain all the locally focussed programming and discussion on various matters of interest to our community. Louise keeps her midday 11am-2pm show, and Fraser’s alarm clock remains set at 5am.


Mondays sees the movement of two shows with David Spencer and his Country Show starting at 7pm (previously: Wednesday 7pm) and Mr G moving from Tuesday late evenings to start at 9pm (previously: Tuesday 11pm).


Dennis Matthews’ Funhouse and New & Unsigned Show stays at 7pm, but is now followed by a brand new show by Dan Tipping. He’s bringing you the best of Alt Rock at 9pm. Penella is slimming her show down to an hour so now starts at 11pm (previously: 9pm-11pm).


Wednesdays are taking a more decade-focused sound. David Spencer’s move to Mondays means a swap for Ian Leonard and his 50s and 60s Show (7pm – previously: Monday 8pm-10pm). 70s with Dennis and the 80s & 90s Show stay put at 9pm and 11pm respectively.


Anna Fletcher’s What’s On Show moves to 8pm (previously: Monday 7pm) making The Reporter start an hour earlier at 7pm. Ian and Dennis remain at 9pm and 11pm respectively.


Mark Phillip stays at 6pm, making Gareth’s Drivetime an hour shorter. Ste Walker returns to Fridays with that Friday Feeling at 7pm and the Weekend Warmup gang take over Graeme Park’s 9pm-11pm slot (previously: 7pm-9pm). DJ Simi remains at 11pm.


Saturdays see little change, with Rob, Dan, Alan and Mark & Co keeping their current slots, however our very own fox, Foxy Matt, will be taking helm of Brian Cheetham’s slot, moving his eurodance show to 10pm (previously: 8pm-10pm). Foxy Matt’s previous slot of 8pm is being took over by a new show from Jack Wood; he’s bring you alternative music and chat.


Sundays remain almost the same, however we sadly say goodbye to Luke Briggs and his Sunday Reflection with his slot being taken over by Rob Crossland and his Weekend Breakfast Show. Due to Rob’s decision to wake up earlier means The Matinee crew get their old slot of 3pm back and return with the All New Matinee Show from their leave of absence from our airwaves. They can only hope that their celebrity budget has increased to fill the extended show, or hope Madame takes talk-a-lot pills! James Dean however, from the Matinee team, will stay up until 11pm as he takes over the Late Night Love ship from John Mercer.


We’ve put together a little video to explain the changes.

We hope you really enjoy our brand new schedule, and also hope that you’re as excited as we are about it. If you’ve any queries regarding programming and the scheduling changes, please email our Radio Service Manager on [email protected]
