    David “Ditchy” Ditchfield is a great presenter, I rate him a lot (he’s been great on Pulse 1). He’ll be an asset to Imagine Radio.

    Not so good though for High Peak/Ashbourne with all programming being shared and coming from Stockport plus voice tracking or automation outside b’fast as far as I’m aware instead of the current 3 live shows in the week at HP. No separate programming at all from Ashbourne in the new plans but all shared with HP.

    Tell the Ashburnian’s it’s from Stockport when trying to sell advertising and be shown the door! They are very proud of their town.

    Nice to see a radio group investing in there stations. Maybe the likes of touch fm owners could take note.
