How We Help Businesses What's On Guide

HERE’S TO A HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY MP for Crewe and Nantwich, it gives me great A spleasure to write this 1st Birthday message to the listeners, supporters and followers of RedShift Radio. I have appeared on RedShift Radio several times and on a variety of shows including Polish Insight and Community Round-Up. Dr Gav and Bizzy Lizzy have developed a strong and diverse team around them and are popular and pro-active members of our community. RedShift Radio really does live up to its motto of “Bringing Communities Together” and we as a community should support their efforts to bring a full-time FM community station to this area. If you have not yet tuned in to one of the 45 different shows online then I urge you to do so. I wish Dr Gav, Bizzy Lizzy and the whole of the RedShift Radio team a very happy 1st Birthday and best of luck when they come to apply for a full-time FM licence in 2013. Edward Timspon, MP for Crewe & Nantwich
