Phoenix fm is Calderdale's Community Radio Station
Hi everyone. 12-2pm every Monday I present the Lunchtime Live program... we like to call it Lunchtime Jive on this particular day.
I play a mixture of vintage and modern Jive and Rock n Roll music. The general aim is to promote the Jive dance scene to the benefit of everyone. Jiving is a pleasurable activity that gets you out of the house and interacting with others. Dancing in general is said to be good for physical and mental health. So get out of that arm chair and get Jiving.
Rocking John lives in Halifax. It was my pleasure to interview him in 2018. He is a larger than life character who really likes music from the 50s. You may see John and his wife heather out and about dancing as they are regulars at all the main jive/Rock 'n' Roll events around Calderdale. He especially likes the music of the great Johnny Cash and is a fountain of knowledge regarding all things Rock 'n' Roll. I look forward to the time he returns to Phoenix fm.
Myself in interview with Georgie Dupree, daughter of Champion Jack Dupree, one of Halifax's most famous musicians. This episode of Lunchtime Jive was First broadcast 24th September 2018.
