Here at Balsall Radio we love to push the conventional boundaries of community radio. In the past you have seen us host interviews with current Eastenders star, and child sweetheart Bonnie Langford, not to mention other big names such as ITV’s superstar finalist Jon Moses, ex Birmingham City footballer Martin Taylor and Paralympic record breaker David Moreton, just to name a few. All of this is to provide Balsall Common with first class entertainment right on their doorstep, for example how often is it a figure like Bonnie Langford pops into the village for a coffee?
A few weeks back this mentality was extended in the form of a radio show. After many board meetings, and studio recordings for the 45 jingles! Balsall Radio launched the first and only chart show to feature in Balsall Common, which runs every Friday, 7-9PM.
Now you may be reading this at home wondering why you would want to listen to our chart in comparison to the likes of Capital FM and BBC Radio 1? The reason why you’ll love our chart is that it has a huge relevance to the local community. In a chart for Balsall Common, we can use all of the extremely talented local artists to feature in the chart show. This means one week you may see Justin Bieber in second place, to the wonderful Karl Loxley!
A final note to make is that the chart is completely chosen by the people of Balsall Common. We combine music streaming statistics for the area, twitter and facebook polls to decide the order of the Balsall Radio Chart.
The Balsall Radio Chart features on the show entitled ‘The Friday Night Show’, hosted by Samuel Hughes every Friday evening from 7-9pm. You can click here to learn more about Sam and click here to learn more about the show.
