New radio show is very Scilly

Community station Radio Scilly is starting a request show with a difference.

Starting this Sunday at 1pm is "Request Stop". Island bus driver turned radio presenter Steve Simms will be recording dedications with passengers for the hour long show on the Island's only bus route.

Steve's show follows on from the success of the "Charity Shop Chart Show". Each Sunday at 4, retired vet Malcolm Martland presents a countdown of the best 9 tracks he has been discovered from his CD purchases at the St Mary's Charity "Shop", effectively a weekly jumble sale that opens between 10 and 12 on Saturdays at the Church Hall.

Managing Director Keri Jones said they would consider syndication, if the price was right: "If I hear that Bauer or Global have ripped off these ground breaking format shows I shall be very grumpy. We've invested considerably in development for these destination programmes. In fact the "Request Shop" concept cost me a round of Doom Bar while we bounced around ideas.

"I'm particularly pleased that we have brought back the 70's practice of programme names, too. I'm thinking about re-branding the afternoon show "Afternoon Delight". I'm sure we could find a track we could use to make short stings from."
