Crowd funding campaign for local man
A very much loved family member and brother Peter Dunn died on the 15th May to Covid/cancer. He lived in Cayton village with his wife and daughter. He was a police officer for twenty-three years in Scarborough and Filey. He helped set up and run Filey Brigg ornithological bird watching group. We have started a memorial fundraiser in his memory. We would be extremely grateful foranykind donations.
Very sad to hear of the passing of Dyscworld owner, Bill Broadmore.
Bill was a smashing bloke, always willing to help with posters and ticket sales etc. His musical knowledge was superlative, covering the mainstream to the extreme. We invited him to do a show on RS, but Indigo Alley was always the bigger pull lol.
He will be sorely missed by everybody who knew and admired him. Condolences to his brother Chris and family.
Greetings From Gladstone Road School.
I work with an amazing bunch of people at Gladstone Road Primary School in Scarborough #TeamGlaggo.
We all really miss our kiddie team mates during the Coronavirus muppetry so we’ve made them this video!
Please have a little watch and maybe share it so all the parents out there know it’s not just them missing schools being open!
New Presenter and show
Writer, musician, composer, nightclub host, curator, actor and adventurer, Richard Strange was born in London in 1951. Since his proto-punk rock band The Doctors of Madness (“The missing link between David Bowie and The Sex Pistols…” wrote The Guardian in May 2017) was first unleashed on an uncomprehending public in 1975 (the band was supported by the Sex Pistols, The Jam and Joy Division) he has been a Zelig-like figure whose presence has been felt in every corner of London's cultural life. Now comes his solo show 'Dark Times Radio', an evening of songs, stories, and downright scurrilous gossip from his 40 years in the arts and entertainment world.
Memorial Bench Presentation
On Saturday the 9th November at 11am, the Scarborough and District branch of the Yorkshire Regiment Association is donating a Memorial Bench to the Dean Road Cemetery. It has been paid for from funds raised by the Association, and it is presented in memory of all the soldiers, sailors and other service personnel buried at Dean Road from Numerous conflicts over the years. The Mayor will be in attendance, and all members of the public are invited, particularly those who have relatives buried there. The service is at 11am outisde the Dean Road Cemetery Chapel.
Station sponsors win award!
Who doesn't like a good curry? well here in Scarborough we are blessed by one of our sponsors winning a prestigious award, Indian chef of the year at the curry life awards in London.
ALMOST ACOUSTIC SHOW RETURNS
It's back in a new incarnation!!! Cressida Ford has chosen to take a sabbatical from RS and 'Almost Acoustic' will now be presented by the legendary, and local, Eliza Carthy!!
Our thanks to Ricky Clarke for originally trailblazing the show and our regrets that his temporary absence turned out to be much longer than anticipated. We sincerely hope to see him back, one of these days. The same sentiment extends to Cressida who was a great asset to RS. We wish you well in all your future endeavours!!
Meanwhile you can tune in to hear Eliza's 'Almost Acoustic' show on Mondays at 8pm.
'VIEW FROM THE BOW'
We are very pleased to inform you all that Andy King's blindness has proved temporary and he is well on the way to a full recovery. Andy's 'View From the Bow' programme will be returning in the very near future.
FM LICENCE APPLICATION
Our application for a community FM licence has been approved. Over the last eight years, Radio Scarborough has grown from a tiny acorn, into a genuine, dedicated community station, that features a broad range of programmes, with hopefully, something for everyone and a workforce of over forty volunteers. The station is supported by business sponsors and partners, together with many community and charitable organisations.
Last Summer, we were visited by Dom Chambers of the Community Media Association, who sang our praises in his monthly podcast, which is widely listened to by those in the radio industry. He was especially complimentary about our youth project, so well done The Radio Scarborough Youth Team (the eldest is 14, so they're not on here lol)
Gaining our FM licence is the next step in growing the mighty oak that will provide our borough with the platform it deserves: to link, support, promote and serve this area and its diverse community.
