Christmas Cheer at Radio Glan Clwyd!
A very merry Christmas to all of our lovely listeners from both within Glan Clwyd Hospital and across the wider community!
Christmas Collection – Tweedmill Factory Outlet, St Asaph
The last of our Christmas collections took place on Saturday 16 December at the Tweedmill Factory Outlet in St Asaph. Presenters Glyn and Tony were in charge of the music and were playing all of those festive favourites for shoppers to sing along to. Father Christmas was in store, speaking to the children and no doubt taking those last minute present requests!
Radio Glan Clwyd team members Eugene, Sue, Olga, Ceri and Andy were busy with the collecting buckets, and presenter Brenda Jones was in charge of the photographs. A big thank you to the shoppers for their donations, and to the staff and management at the Tweedmill for their hospitality. The main photo above shows the team hard at work, whilst Tony and Glyn give the van it’s annual clean (left)!
Live pianist in the studio – Christmas sing along!
Presenter Andy Hayes was joined by local pianist Chris Walden on ‘The Saturday Show’ on 16 December, between 10am and 1pm. Pianist Chris was performing Christmas songs live and taking listeners requests, which included ‘White Christmas’ and ‘Silent Night’.
‘The Valentinos’ live with Wyn and Luke
Wyn and Luke will be hosting their Christmas special on the airwaves on Sunday 17 December between 4 and 7pm. Their special guests are ‘The Valentinos’ who will be talking to Wyn and Luke, and performing live on air. Do tune in if you can, online and on 1287AM.
Back in 2015, Radio Glan Clwyd members got together to record and perform a radio pantomime. Written and adapted for radio by Denise Murtha, ‘Cinderella’ starred presenters including Gareth McCormack as the narrator, Andy Hayes as Buttons, and Eugene Carey as Prince Charming. There’ll be another opportunity to hear this on air on Saturday 23 December at 10.30am.
