RAIDERS ROCKED - CHRISTMAS PARTY AND AWARDS 2012

Happy Christmas to raidersbroadcast.com     
    RAIDERS CHRISTMAS PARTY AND AWARDS 2012 

 
My last show of 2012 was on December 19th.  Apart from being packed with Christmas tracks, I played my favourite music and thanked my listeners for supporting me over the year.  Tony Williams, Producer of Rhythm 365, and some of his DJs came into my show to say hi, and Hannah Woolley - Controller of Raiders One, took over at 8 o’clock. 

Celebrating at The Raiders Chirstmas Party 
The Raiders Christmas Bash was held at The Pizza Express, in Balham.  Twenty of us, including presenters from the 80s and 90s gathered to make the Christmas Party and Awards a very special occasion.  As well as presenters, there were News Raid contributors, Labour and Lib Dem councillors, studio technicians, Raiders mentor Arthur Smith and several ‘friends’ of Raiders.  We sat down together to celebrate almost thirty years of Raiders FM, and raidersbroadcast.com.

    1. Thanks for reading my blog, and for leaving a message, Vikki. Yes, it was a fun night. Getting all the DJs and contributors together is madness personified. But they're a great bunch.
