The First Coronavirus Free Radio Station – Duggystone Radio – doing things different
Written by kirk on April 3, 2020
We decided A Few Weeks Ago To Become The First Corona Virus Free Radio Station!
Well we noticed everywhere we turned to; whether that was on the TV, social media, and even our own news bulletins and many of our shows were constantly talking about the Coronavirus (Corvid-19).
Yes, it’s important, yes people need to know and be kept informed, but we felt that there was no escape, like being bullied into submission.
So we decided to cut the world news and instruct all presenters to focus on entertaining and not talk about the Coronavirus.
Who Are We
Duggystone Radio was born in 2017, a place to promote emerging artists and a platform for experienced and emerging radio presenters. Nearly 3 years on we have genre-specific shows, from blues to country, biker shows to car shows. Each presenter gives their time to a genre they are passionate about.
Our presenters range from the youngest at 14 to over 70 with our oldest presenter, it is truly inspiring to see how much the shows have developed and improved some of our humble beginnings back in 2017.
We have presenters from all corners of the UK from London, Bristol, The Midlands, Manchester, and Scotland.
We also take shows from, Russia, USA, Canada, Milan.
Some Of Our Success
In 2019 we saw 4 of the artists we promote win awards including Dan Evans from the Reggae show picking up songwriter of the year for “When I See You” sang by Danny McMahon who collected several awards at the UKCMA (UK Country Music Awards).
We also got The Mirror Pictures song “Robin Friday” played on virtually every Premiership Football match playlist, its what we do, its a movement. We don’t just play songs we network and promote people that interact with us.
We are passionate about what we do and the result is we reach well over 100k across our listeners’ social media and Website.
We would love to become “Your Safe Bunker” so “Keep Us Locked In Whilst On Lock Down”
