A biennial charity radio show is returning to the airwaves this weekend.

Amersham based Radio Christmas launches on Thursday, (December 1), at 6am and organisers promise it will bigger and better than ever.

Endorsed by celebrities such as Wayne Sleep and former Prime Minister David Cameron, the station is looking for presenters, news readers, advertisers, sponsors and general helpers.

The schedule will include breakfast and drivetime presenters and a community show, which will feature Tom Herbert from the Bucks Advertiser on December 8.

Duncan Dyason, founder of Radio Christmas and the Street Kids Direct charity it supports, said: “We are really excited for Radio Christmas this year.

Duncan Dyason, Kathryn Ridout and Jack Gocher.

“We have lots of new shows, some big ideas and even outside broadcasts.

“As ever we are looking for lots of people young and old to come and help and find out first hand what it’s like to be part of a live radio station.”

Mr Dyason, who lives in Guatemala City, founded the station in 2008 and returns to Amersham every two years to run it.

Last time the show raised £21,000 for Street Kids Direct, and Mr Dyason hopes to make that even more this year.

Street Kids Direct is a charity that helps street children in Guatemala and Hondorous, working in partnership with local charities and funding projects there.

The station is also inviting businesses to get involved with advertising or sponsorship.

PR and marketing man Jack Gocher said: “Every single penny of every single donation made to Radio Christmas goes directly to the projects supported by Street Kids Direct.

“Nobody is paid and there are no admin fees.

“However, putting on a radio station does require us to pay for licenses and equipment so we invite businesses to benefit from our high listenership by advertising.
