What’s on your ipod returns!

Now we have a cosy new studio it’s time to rejuvenate “What’s on your Ipod” – where a listener is invited into the studio to share their 10 top tracks. Imagine you’ve been marooned on a far off island with only 10 songs on a playlist…what would they be? It’s a novel idea for a show I’m sure you’d agree!

Over a year in the making, the next WOYI features a pretty Prog Heavy selection from Anthony Pugh, who won the slot in a raffle at a CrowZone Radio Quiz night in 2018! Agile we ain’t!

Anthony will be joining us live in the studio on Thursday Feb 6th for the Howe-Bizarre WOYI and we really hope you’ll be able to listen in and chat along on our chatroll app.

Please feel free to share this xx

As always there’s lots of great shows presented by truly passionate DJs every evening on CrowZone – check out the “What’s on” section on our homepage to see the listing (you can scroll up and down to other days), and our robot DJ plays awesome music for you all day. Drop in anytime and you won’t be disappointed.

Jan2020–New Shows on CrowZone Radio

CrowZone Quiz night raises over £600!

We’ve been supporting our local primary school for a few years now with a “Jukebox Music quiz” based on the extensive library we’re building as we go along.

This year (we think our 5th, but not sure) was a great success raising over £600 which helps funds the First Access Violin programme at the school. Providing access to violins and lessons for all students that want to take part.

We can’t take all the credit though – the school PTA organises all the food and bar and makes it such a pleasure to be part of.

Thursday 13th July is the first ever “CrowZone Radio Beer Club”!

A bit like Radio Book Club, but without the reading. We’ll be sampling 3 Golden Ales from Greene king, available at most supermarkets in a special 6 pack, including Golden IPA, Old Hoppy Hen, and Old Golden Hen.

You can taste along with us at home and let us know what you think of the beers too! We’ll also be taking requests and song suggestions around the theme of “Golden”.

Smudge’s Christmas Post

Smudge 2Welcome to my Christmas Blog.

It’s been awhile since I’ve sat down and written a blog, so what, I hear you ask, brings me to write one now?

Well, one reason is to thank all the listeners to CrowZone Radio for their continued support, knowing you tune in on a regular basis makes the reason we present shows worthwhile. Thank You all for being there.

My second reason is to publicise a special show on Monday 2nd January 2017, I am taking over the airwaves of CrowZone Radio from 10am all through the day till 10pm, a 12 hour “Non-repeat” artist Music Marathon.

I am raising money for Alzheimer’s Society, a great organisation.

I will be telling a few really awful jokes and will be setting a few pop questions for you to think about, but generally speaking nothing too serious, a bit of fun raising money for a good cause.

I am taking requests and dedications now via smudge@crowzone.co.uk

I have set up a “Just Giving” page – www.justgiving.com/CrowZoneRadio so please feel free to make a donation – all donations gratefully received.

Once again thanks for supporting CrowZone Radio – looking forward to your company at some point (if not all day) on 2nd January 2017

“The Loney”–bookclub review this coming Wednesday, 19th Oct 9pm

No, not the looney, The Loney. It’s a scary sounding place in the North west coast of England. Creepy goings on and general scariness in time for the Hallowe’en season.


I have only just started reading it, so I’m hoping there’s enough time to get it finished for the review on Wednesday. Why not see if you can do the same? The book is available online from Amazon Kindle etc, so hopefully you’ll be able to join in the review with us.
