Sands Radio goes on the road for first anniversary

Sands Radio is getting ready to celebrate its first birthday with a series of outside broadcasts on the Fylde Coast in the northwest of England.

Station founder Nigel Clarkson told RadioToday about the progress so far: “Our first outside broadcast was held at Mediconf UK Ltd on Wood Street, St Annes with great success.

It is essential we get out and about as a truly local radio station to meet our listeners. The response has been absolutely fantastic and we are thrilled.

“We have a dedicated presentation team and superb technical support from Andy Bolton Productions who gives us every capability hold ‘live’ mobile outside broadcasts to full stage productions. I worked with DJ pep on OBs at The Bay at Lancaster nearly 20 years ago and I thought it’s time for us both to take to the road together with some live breakfast shows.

“It’s great to be back ‘out and about’ entertaining on the Fylde.”

Sands Radio launched in August 22nd shortly after Blackpool’s Radio Wave rebranded as Greatest Hits Radio
