Radio needs memories

People aged between 16 and 100 are needed for a huge community radio project.

Three Hills Radio, in Nuneaton, is searching for memories to broadcast on air for its Camp Hill Through the Decades project.

It also needs hands-on help from anyone interested in collecting the memories, presenting shows, recording music or making jingles.

The community radio station has been awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant to help pay for the project, which will result in broadcasts of local memories from the 1940s to the 1990s.

Project manager Kirk Thomson said: “We are looking for people from 16 to 100 who would like to take part in broadcasting in August this year or who have more memories to add to the one’s we’ve got.

“Already there has been a great response to this project. We have a number of incredible real life stories that capture the imagination from times gone by in Camp Hill.

“We welcome working with all the schools, churches and other organisations who would like to get involved.”

Pupils from Hartshill School have already signed up to the project and will be researching some of the decades, interviewing family members and doing some presenting.

Ali Bushnell, from Three Hills Radio, added: “I am doing the 1940s and I’m looking for people to interview about living in Camp Hill in the ‘40s or leaving Camp Hill.

“As well as the 1940s, we would be happy to hear from anyone who has a story to tell from any of the decades we’re featuring. Anyone with memories of life in Camp Hill, be it work, school or social, we want to hear from you.”
