Catch up on Challenge Radio's best bits

Various radio groups and presenters came together for a 12-hour RSL station this week, broadcast live from a tent outside the Radio Festival in Salford.

Presenters on the pop-up service, which was available yesterday on DAB and FM in Manchester as well as online, were BBC network presenters Ken Bruce, Jane Garvey, Fi Glover, Stuart Maconie, Adele Roberts, Anneka Rice and Raj & Pablo; Heart’s Joel Ross; Key 103’s Adam Caterall; Rock FM’s Jordan North; 5 live’s Chris Warburton and talkSPORT’s Max Rushden; Free Radio’s Ben Burrell; Fun Kids’ Bex Lindsay; Xfm’s Clint Boon; Absolute Radio’s Vicki Blight; and student radio award-winners Glen Scott and Emma Jones.

The studio and broadcast equipment were built and co-ordinated by Broadcast Bionics. The 12-hour 8am-8pm broadcast was streamed online with live video too, and there was also additional video content produced by students from the University of Salford.

Delegates at the Radio Festival in Salford also made guest appearances on the pop-up station. They included Radio 1 Controller and Radio Academy Chairman Ben Cooper, who went on for a few minutes with Ken Bruce while the Challenge Radio output was being simulcast on Radio 2.
