Hitting the Airwaves Radio Stylie.

Hitting the Airwaves Radio Stylie.

Exciting news! I am going to be co-hosting a radio show (with another David) on Surrey Hills Community Radio. We have been given the 9.00pm – 11.00pm slot on a Friday night, so I think that is pretty rock n’ roll.

I am possibly way too excited to be on a local community radio show. The reason I am excited is that I love it on car journeys when the London radio stations lose signal and a lovely local radio station comes on and tells me all about the news that is happening in the area. It feels like a welcome to town. Now, I get to be that person. We have a cool show lined up and it feels nice to be doing something that is centered on the area I live. I mean, Leatherhead has an annual Duck Race, and how many places can say the same?

The other really cool thing I have found (I know I am using the word cool a lot, but I am in a good mood, so go with it) is that because the radio show is broadcast through an online app, people can listen to it in other countries too. I am just saying, and I am in no way hinting that people I know abroad should listen to the show. But you should. Seriously.

On a side note, it is an interesting notion that I have spent six months getting to know some very awesome music types and I had no intention of being on the radio. It is serendipitous that I know some really good up and coming bands and musicians so I can play them on air.

I am going to the studio tonight (which is five minutes from where I live, so that was very nice of them to be so considerate) to be shown the ropes, which is odd as I would imagine there would be more buttons and headphones involved, yet, I am the novice here, so I am remaining open minded. I will post pictures tomorrow and let you know how it went. I will also post when the first show is coming out and what will be on it.

There will be a website going up soon (created by the lovely Gauri) and I will link it when it is up.

Until then, you can listen to the show online on the link below or get the app for your phone and listen to it on the go. I have been listening to it while I have written this post. So far, The Eagles and Elton John. Good tunes so a good sign.


I am off to practise my radio voice. Eeeeeeeeeee!

Take care buddies,



About davidmbeecroft

Hello and welcome to my blog. Please feel free to have an explore. My name is David Beecroft. I am 38 years old. I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued in 1998. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have sent my first novel off to agents and considering self-publishing if that does not work. I co-host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Daves of the Week where we feature charities for a six week period. I live with my fiance and two pet Degus. I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of this blog was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. I also like to look at the happier sides of life and try to put a positive spin on serious subjects.
