THERE'S A big blue car in the studio. NO ROOM LEFT FOR MARTIN !

I would like to thank local musician and songwriter Kev Williams for joining me on my 'Sunday Evening Jukebox Party' programme on 30th September. Kev shared some favourite tracks that have influenced him over the years, and more importantly his own breathtaking recordings. Kev writes, sings, and plays all the instruments within his recordings under the banner 'Big Blue Car', and you will be hearing more from his music over the coming months.
It was apt to find out that his early musical life was spent practicing with a band at the Point 7 Club, which used to stand in Leigh Park and near to our studio.

Havant Young Carers Making us all aware

This afternoon it was a real pleasure to be joined by Vicky, Matthew and Lizzie from the local charity Havant Young Carers. The Flash are preparing features for a forthcoming on air Mental Health Awareness campaign that we are organising and they kindly joined me in the studio to make a recording about the support they offer. 
The Flash would like to hear from any local group or charity in the PO postcode area who work to either help persons with mental health issues or promote good mental health through social events, a caring ear, or help with those worries and stresses that life can bring.
E-mail 'martin@theflashonair.co.uk' if you are interested in taking part in this on air campaign, which will be launched once we have enough recorded features and information in place.
You can find out more about Havant Young Carers by clicking on the link below -

Jonelle Faulkner Joins the Team

Jonelle already getting to Grips at the Desk
Listeners who turn on to The Flash to enjoy the David Harris show on Monday afternoons may not realise that he is usually assisted by Chris Rogers, who operates the studio equipment so David can concentrate on providing his informative patter.
Chris is on holiday at present, so we say a big thank you to Jonelle Faulknerfor operating the desk live for David today.
Jonelle was a bit nervous at first but needn't have been as she did a fantastic job. Thank you Jonelle for your kind help today and for joining the team.

New Presenter OH YES Another Girl on the Team

I would like to introduce you to Jonelle Falkner and welcome her to The Flash team. Jonelle was introduced to us through Positive Pathways and is gradually being introduced to the various activities that go on in order to keep the station on the air. Here she is being introduced to our on air studio. Jonelle is keen to help out behind the scenes, however I doubt if it will be long before she is heard on air.

Although we do still have a great deal of work to do before we can announce a date for the launch of our Community FM service to the greater Waterlooville area, we have started to increase our live output in preparation for that great day. Roger Wilson has now settled into his live Tuesday morning slot at 9.00am, and we recently saw the very welcome return of Edward Couzens-Lake's live Wednesday morning 10.00am to midday show.
This week will see further exciting changes, with the launch of a new live Monday evening show from Iain Lynch, who will be taking over the 6.00pm slot from Jamie Moore as of tomorrow evening. Jamie Moore's excellent 'Rewind' show will continue to be enjoyed on Saturday mornings from 10.00am, and will now also kick off your weekend experience at 6.00pm each Friday.
This coming Sunday at 8.00am will see the welcome launch of a brand new live Sunday morning breakfast show, presented by new presenter John Harcourt-Kelly. Kev Fiford's popular Sunday morning show will now follow the breakfast show and start an hour later at 10.00am.
