Hello friends and listeners!!Janice Sugden
It has been a long time since I wrote my blog; and so much has happened in that time…..Where to begin: Brexit has come and gone, putting many important new rules in place that have affected most people and prompted the scramble for people to start the process of obtaining residency here in Europe. Many have done that an hopefully everything will settle down and we can all get on with our lives,
The Covid 19 virus has gripped the entire world and despite various lockdown measures, we are still at the mercy of this terrible virus. Apart from the obvious devastation and panic this has caused, the effect on businesses has been catastrophic. As a business, we know as well as anyone the effect of the lockdowns and, hopefully we have come through it……just.
It has been hard on every business locally and globally but I want to say right now to the ones who have managed to get through this; Well done and congratulations for hanging in there and I hope sincerely that things will be better going forward for all of us.
Costa Calida Int Radio has carried on improving since my last Blog, but I admit at a slower pace than planned. Economically, it has not been viable to invest in the areas that we had planned but when things are back to normal, it will be full steam ahead for the station and we will complete the task of getting the station where it deserves to be. We are going places!
A quick mention to our team of presenters – and in no particular order; Eddie B, Sean, Carolynn, Ruma, Hartley and Jackie, James and Martyn Ross…they are all fantastic people and great radio presenters and are all vital to the continued success of our little local station.
I would also like to thank the presenters from afar that send us great shows with fantastic music and content; Dave Mac (Retro chart show), Paul Baker, Matt Barker (Deuce), Jared Ingersol (Wandering Minstrels), Peter Fairhead and Tony Pankhurst all doing a great job for the station.
You will hopefully have seen the improvements to our website with the new business directory and a marketplace so you can buy or sell anything from a house to an ornament. Added to the features already here such as the local news, weather, pharmacy guide and the listen live facility it really is a website worth visiting.
So we move forward, bringing you great music and all the news and information we possibly can, all day every day. We sincerely hope that you like what we do and that we are playing the right music. It is hard to get it perfect every time but we will give it a really good try! Costa Calida Int Radio; your local, international music station, keep on keeping on……..and they can´t stop us laughing J
P.s; My Blogs will be more regular from here on in. D
