Record of the Week

Next week, from Monday 13th to Sunday 19th, is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. The theme for 2019 is Body Image – how we think and feel about our bodies.

David Murphy has brought to our attention a one minute 'simulcast' taking place on Monday (13th) at 10:59. We have registered on behalf of our station and are hoping to hear back from them in time for us to participate.

Kim Wallis has suggested the track below as our ROTW so we will start playing that on Monday 13th May.

#IFeelBetterWhen was first released on 1st December 2017 with the aim to #HitTheCharts and take mental well being to no.1. It actually reached no.3 in the Amazon Charts in its first week of release behind Ed Sheeran and Elbow!

It was recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios.

The song was written by 'Refuge' who are Phil Seaman, rethinkyourmind project creator Pete Hirst & Sam Munton.

Some of the people involved are friends of Kim and they also produced a book called the Yellow Book. The record and book were both designed at promoting care for Mental Health.

One of the people involved was Claire Evans and she will be in the Switch Dunmow studio as a guest of Kim on Wednesday talking about the record, the book and other Mental Health issues.

Switch Dunmow …..

Is the brain child of Jacky Rom, the Station Controller.
Over 4 years ago Jacky, who also runs the Arts Centre Dunmow, was struggling to let everyone know what goes on in The Arts Centre.
One day she thought “Let’s have a radio Station” and now 2+ years on it’s become a reality.  Switch Dunmow launched on Monday 6th of January 2014 with over 50 Volunteers. They were all amazed that over 3,000 people listened in the first month.

Now they are listened to by over 20 countries world wide and have over 34,000 listener sessions per annum!

Although Switch is a Community Radio Station, all the presenters love the idea of reaching further afield.

Switch Dunmow has a show for everyone, with easy listening throughout the day and live shows from 6pm.
