Radio marathon charity show for Southwold and Blyth Valley

The Blyth Valley will be alive with the sound of music from tonight thanks to a volunteer-run radio station.

Presenters at Blyth Valley Community Radio are staging a 13-hour charity radio show which starts at 6pm today and finishes at 7am tomorrow.

Volunteer DJs Elora Parocki, Rosy Kelvey and Neil Loades are due to host the show, which will be broadcast on 105 FM to listeners around Southwold, Reydon and the surrounding area including Blythburgh, Walberswick, Wangford and Wrentham.

The marathon music show is being held to raise money for the not-for-profit station and the charity Amasango, which helps street children in South Africa.

Blyth Valley Community Radio's primary studio and transmitter site is located in a second world war bunker in the grounds of St Felix School in Reydon, and its new second studio based in The Casino on Gun Hill, Southwold.
