Headline News from Switch Dunmow

New Station and Name Change!

There have been some exciting changes to Switch Dunmow.  Most importantly a name change to Switch Radio Essex, though the website name remains the same for the time being as does the ability to listen to it via the familiar ‘Listen Now’ button in the top right hand corner of the screen.  

The station is now part of a group of 3 stations under the Switch Radio UK banner - the other two being Switch Radio Derbyshire and Switch Radio Yorkshire.  The other good news is that you can hear your favourite Switch programmes on Switch Radio Derbyshire as well at a different time during week, thus providing a further outlet for our great programmes.

The new full programming schedule will be available on the schedule page, but for now your familiar shows are available as follows:

After Eight Show - Derby Mon 8pm / Essex Tue 8pm

Flitch Switch - Derby Tue 6pm / Essex Tue 10pm

A New Dawn - Derby Tue 8pm / Essex Wed 8pm

Jon’s Jukebox - Derby Thu 6pm / Essex Thu 10pm

Boogie With Stu - Derby Fri 6pm / Essex Wed 10pm

Funky Blues - Derby Fri 8pm / Essex Thu 8pm

Money Money Money - Derby Sun 7pm / Essex Sun 6pm

You can listen to the other Switch stations by accessing their websites here:

Derbyshire - http://www.castlepointfm.co.uk

Yorkshire - http://www.runfm.co.uk

There are plans to completely revamp this website as the Switch Radio UK site with full access to all Switch stations and with improved facilities.  This will happen over the coming weeks.

Keep in touch folks.


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.

Here’s the latest news from Jacky ….

Hi all... Well! what an experience lockdown was....But as a really positive person I needed to stay sane... So here is what I undertook.....

I filmed 3 seasons of a new YOUTUBE series all from my bedroom.... 'Jacky Rom Investigates'.... I took on nearly all the roles, from editing, camera and directing... It was full on and something positive to work towards....

It's been really well received and lots of people are watching.... www.youtube.com/c/jackyrom

At the same time as I'm a Drama teacher all my classes  reverted to online... Lots of Drama teachers were asking for ideas... So  I wrote a book!

Virtual Class plans and I'm so happy to announce it's been my most successful book ever and i'm now writing book 16...

I'm so proud of everyone at Switch Dunmow... We kept on air without any downtime... Every Presenter dealt with what needed to be done... You are all Brilliant !!!!!!
