Jack heads to Afghanistan

Oxfordshire’s 106 JACKfm’s breakfast show team are heading to Camp Bastion in Afghanistan.

The team of four will broadcast their daily show live back to the UK from the BFBS studios within the camp between 6am and 9am, with help from The Royal British Legion.

The project has been officially endorsed by The Prime Minister David Cameron who personally phoned the breakfast show to wish the team good luck and asked JACK’s Morning Glory to pass on a message of how proud he was of our servicemen and women. Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson has also lent his support, calling with a message of encouragement for everyone at Bastion.

Programme Director Sue Carter told RadioToday.co.uk: “Between us in the team going out, we’ve got over 50 years of radio experience, and it’s definitely the biggest thing any of us have ever been involved with. We just hope we can bring our audience throughout Oxfordshire a taste of what life in Afghanistan is really like for the thousands of our guys and girls who are serving out there.

"The broadcast would not be possible without the support of our major partner The Royal British Legion as well as The British Forces Broadcasting Service."
